Abstract:

Eielson Air Force Bases Eielson main gate is located in the end-of-runway clear zone creating significant hazard for gate personnel. In addition, the existing gate facilities and their configuration cause significant traffic movement delays when heightened security is implemented. The proposed action would result in the construction of a new gate complex along the Old Richardson Highway approximately 300 feet north of the existing gate. This gate complex would include a visitors center with expanded parking area for visitor parking and processing, three vehicle traffic lanes for checking identification, a vehicle inspection lane, an offenders parking lot, and a drop arm gate.
