Fort Wainwright officials have closed the Yukon Training Area east of Eielson Air Force Base to public use through Aug. 23. Military-training exercises will be ongoing there until the 23rd.

Post officials say in a news release that the quarter-million area training range is off-limits to all. They say people who’ve had regular access through the area to get to private or leased property must use an alternate route.

Training under way in the Yukon Training Area includes joint exercises with Army personnel as part of the latest Red Flag training round that began this week.

Meanwhile, Stryker Brigade soldiers from Wainwright are conducting exercises in the Donnelly Training Area, south of Fort Greely.
