Fort Gordon warns of traffic delays

Fort Gordon expects heavy traffic and travel delays beginning Monday morning because of gate access changes.

According to a news release, Fort Gordon will close Gates 2 and 3 and traffic will be directed through Gate 1. A sign at Gate 2 will inform drivers of the change.

Officials say to plan for traffic delays in areas near Gates 1 and 5. Gate 5 will be open from 4:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

According to a news release, because of civilian employee furloughs, the post won’t have enough guards to keep all of the gates open.
