KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Aerospace Corp. says it is planning a rocket launch test this month at the spaceport on Kodiak Island.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports that road, waterway and air closures have been scheduled for July 15 to July 19, and July 22 to July 27.

The corporation referred questions about the launch to the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.

Defense agency spokeswoman Heather Cavaliere says she can't release details of any possible launches or activity in the near future.

She did confirm, however, that the agency has a presence on Kodiak.
