Upcoming Summer Construction - Main Gate Improvements
Fort Wainwright is improving security features of the main gate according to Army standards. The project will require closure of the main gate beginning at 0001, June 2, 2021 and extending to early October.
This project will improve access to the visitor center, improve traffic flow, and aid in snow clearing operations.
- Traffic signal reprogramming for River Road
- Extended and adjusted gate hours
- Lazelle Gate will be inbound only and will process all Commercial Vehicle and visitor access 24/7
- Richardson South Gate access will help alleviate peak hour traffic flow through other gates
Project updates will be posted here and on our Facebook page as they happen throughout the summer.
