Gate Access

Cerjan and Gas Alley Access Control Points are open.

Mount Belvedere Access Control Point is open 24/7 to DoD ID card holders only. Non DoD ID holders attempting to access post through Mount Belvedere ACP will be redirected to Cerjan or Gas Alley ACP due to medical screening requirements.

Wheeler-Sack Army Airfield Gate is open to all patrons with valid ID cards and passes (no Trusted Traveler) from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays; closed on days of no scheduled activity (DONSAs), weekends, and holidays. When WSAAF Gate is closed, ID card / pass holders who require access to the airfield should enter through Gas Alley Gate and cross over Route 26 via Nash Boulevard to Bomporto Bridge. Sponsors / visitors with an exception to policy who are seeking access passes should report to the Visitor Control Center at Cerjan Gate before attempting to use WSAAF Gate.

Those seeking admittance to post will be required to submit to a verbal health screening.

Visitor passes must be submitted through the Soldier’s chain of command. Anyone wishing to have a visitor on post who is traveling from outside the local travel area must submit a visitor request memo and an application for sponsorship.

Retirees and beneficiaries must go through medical screening before entering post.

Delivery drivers who were not vetted for access before the pandemic will be directed to the Visitor Control Center at Cerjan Gate where they will need to submit to background check and show proof of their delivery requirement. If the delivery driver does not pass the background check, customers will need to pick up their delivery at the VCC.

Taxi, Uber and Lyft drivers who were vetted to operate on Fort Drum will now be allowed to bring DoD ID card and Local Access Badge holders onto post for drop-off purposes only. After dropping off the fare, they must immediately leave post and will not be allowed to pick up fares while on post.
