Kennedy Space Center's "Industrial Area" Delayed Opening Feb. 2
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Buildings in the "industrial area" of NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., will have a delayed opening on Thursday, Feb. 2. Employees in that area, which includes the Operations and Checkout Building, the Space Station Processing Facility and Kennedy Headquarters Building, should expect to report to work at 10 a.m. EST.

All other areas of Kennedy remain open and are unaffected by the industrial area delayed opening, which is due to remaining effects of heavy smoke from a controlled burn. Personnel who work "second" and "third" shifts Wednesday, Feb. 1, are expected to report to work per their usual schedules.

Employees are encouraged to call in to recorded status phone lines at 321-861-7900 or 321-867-3900 for the latest opening information. Personnel on "first shift" should call a status phone line before reporting to work at 10 a.m. Thursday.
