A major training exercise on Fort Drum started yesterday and area residents could hear more helicopter noise.

The 10th Mountain Division's 10th Combat Aviation Brigade is undergoing the Falcon's Peak training exercise which runs through April 18. During the exercise, motorists can expect heavy military vehicle traffic at times and longer-than-usual delays at stop signs and traffic lights. Meanwhile, communities including Carthage, Lowville, Gouverneur, Degrasse, Saranac Lake, and Cranberry Lake will likely hear and see additional helicopter traffic, some of which could be at very low altitudes.
