Work begins next week on a project that will require Fort Wainwright’s main gate to be closed for the next four months. To help motorists get on and off the installation during that time, post officials are opening up two other gates and making other traffic adjustments.

Fort Wainwright

Work will begin next month on improvements to the busiest entryway into Fort Wainwright. The project on the eastern stretch of Gaffney Road will require temporary closure of the Main Gate and Visitors Center. When it’s completed, the changes will help traffic flow more smoothly on to post. It’ll also enable vehicles to get through a much-bigger construction zone that the state will set next year at a nearby major intersection.
