Security measures around the FAA Control Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico have been increased. Concrete barriers have been placed on roads surrounding the center, diverting traffic away from the building. The measures are being taken as a precaution based on intelligence that suggests federal buildings may be targets for terrorist attacks prior to the November elections.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Local police and federal officials shut down the area around the FAA control center in Albuquerque Wednesday, but they said the heightened security is only a precautionary measure.

Sources told Action 7 News that employees inside the control center were advised about nationwide concerns over a federal building being attacked before the November presidential election.

ABC News in Washington, D.C. said that the increased security at FAA control centers is unique to Albuquerque.

The FAA Control center in Albuquerque directs the majority of air traffic in the southwest. FAA spokesman, John Clabes, says the agency did not request the additional security. The placement of the barracades has forced the redirection of traffic in the area, effecting three schools.

I have just heard on the local news, that the barricades blocking Lousiana have been removed from the road and placed closer to the FAA Control Center.

APD had the cement barriers moved to allow for a better flow of traffic to the 3 schools in the area.

I do not have a link at this time. This was heard on the local ABC affiliate, that is linked in the original article.
