FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - Fort Campbell is shutting down a street on the post because of a large number of vehicle accidents on the stretch of road.

Traffic engineers from the Surface Deployment and Distribution Command at Scott Air Force Base near Belleville, Illinois, recommended that military police block off a short section of 59th Street. The recommendation is based on a safety study of the area.

Officials say engineers determined the increase in vehicular accidents was the result of commuters using 59th Street to bypass the traffic signal at Glider Road and Wickham.

The closed area is from 59th Street between Wickham and Market Garden Road on the military post on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.
