Incoming traffic back open to Fort Hood

FORT HOOD, TX (KXXV) - All incoming traffic to Fort Hood was blocked for a couple hours Thursday afternoon, but the gate closure was lifted just after 5 p.m.

Fort Hood sent out a statement that said, "All inbound traffic to Ft. Hood has been blocked due to a potential force protection issue. Outbound traffic is not affected."

The gate closure was caused by a call that came into that gave the commander cause to close inbound traffic. Something or someone off post had worried Fort Hood officials.

Central Texas College canceled classes Thursday night at its Fort Hood campus because of the gate closures.
