JACKSONVILLE, ONSLOW COUNTY -

You may see a major traffic backup on Highway 24 from both directions. That's because officials at Camp Lejeune are doing ID and vehicle registration checks at the base entrances, according to Nat Fahy of Camp Lejeune Public Affairs.

Fahy, who says he's been stuck in traffic for the last hour, says these checks are done at random to make sure those who are entering base are authorized to be there.

He adds that there are currently no threats toward Camp Lejeune or any accidents that have caused the backup.
