This annual exercise is designed to enhance the training and readiness of Navy Security Forces to respond to threats to installations and units. Exercise SOLID CURTAIN-CITADEL SHIELD 2011 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly-scheduled exercise. Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions to normal base and station operations, but there may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around bases or delays in base access.

wow! I would hate to see a real disaster.... traffic on 911 was not this bad. the traffic in the Hampton Roads area was ridiculous. Many civilians were hours late for work due to this exercise.
