HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Redstone Arsenal Gate 8 reopened Monday to incoming and outgoing traffic. The gate reopened at 5:30 a.m. and will close at 1 p.m.

Last week, Senator Jeff Sessions announced that 20 new guards will be hired to work at the gates.

Arsenal officials said it will take some time to hire them all but they will have enough on board to provide immediate relief to the rush hour congestion.

Hours at other gates will remain unchanged, while officials decide if additional guards are needed.
