JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -

Traffic was at a stand-still along NC 24 in Jacksonville Thursday morning.

9 On Your Side talked with Camp Lejeune officials who said it's because of an ID check conducted earlier in the morning.  The check was later lifted.

Officials say the base doesn't conduct ID checks of this nature as a standard practice. However, it's one tool they use to reduce threats on the base.  ID checks like this one can be called at any time.

Traffic cleared up a short time later.
