QUANTICO, Va. – The roads in and out of Quantico Marine Corps Base this week may be jammed thanks to the annual Modern Day Marine exposition.
Modern Day Marine takes place Tuesday through Thursday. Quantico officials will be busy shuttling exhibitors on and off the base, and drivers in the area can expect longer than normal delays between 7:30 and 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 and 5:30 p.m. each day.
Quantico officials say they will put an extensive traffic management plan into effect for the base during the event.
The event will take place on the base’s Lejeune Field. Officials said Floyd/Engineer Road to Buffalo Pond Road will remain open so drivers can access U.S. 1 from 3 to 5:30 p.m. each day of the event.
Founded in 1981, Modern Day Marine was moved to Quantico in 1993 at the invitation of the Commandant of the Marine Corps.
