In addition, a vehicle inspection facility and visitor parking would be constructed. Base entry traffic calming roadway reconfigurations for Main Gate entrydeparture road would also be constructed. This project includes adding curves to the road. At the Commercial south Gate construction would involve an Inspection Facility to include two drive-through bays.
