ANCHORAGE- Delta Junction residents will be able to sleep easy, but it might be a little noisy at night in East Anchorage.


U.S. Army officials say a live-fire training exercise planned for the Donnelly Training Area near Fort Greely has been moved to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. Officials say furloughs during the government shutdown, along with federal budget cuts, or sequestration, have prompted the move.


That change of location means the training will be conducted up to midnight this week along Bulldog Trail, which is adjacent to the Muldoon neighborhood in the state's largest city.


Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment will be firing off weaponry, ranging in size from 5.56 mm to .50-caliber, with the training scheduled to end Friday.
