Work to affect fort traffic

  • Follow Latest News

Fort Gordon drivers should be prepared for detours starting Tuesday because of construction at Gate 2.

According to a news release from the post's Public Affairs Office, drivers will not be able to turn left from Gordon Highway into Gate 2.

Traffic at Gate 2 will be inbound only from 4:30 to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday, starting Tuesday and lasting until late August. After 10 a.m. on those days, traffic will be one lane inbound and one lane outbound.

Lighted message signs along the roads approaching Gate 2 will warn drivers of the traffic flow, the news release says. Speed limits also will be reduced in the construction zone.

The construction is part of a $4.8 million project to install ID checkpoints with overhead covers at all of the gates. Gate 2 will be the first of four entry gates to undergo construction. After work has finished on Gate 2, Gates 3, 5 and 1 will be completed in that order.

OK - so there's construction

OK - so there's construction at Gate 2 beginning Tuesday AND the anti-terrorism exercise is next week which means delays at the gates. Don't you think you should wait a few days on the gate construction? Fort Gordon drivers should leave their homes very very early if they want to make it into work on time.

If there are still two lanes

If there are still two lanes going in, it probably won't be all that bad, except during the anti-terrorism exercise. That's always horrible even with everything working right.
