MCB Front Gate Closed  
My FRO just sent out this email, and I thought it'd be good to know.

"From Base Traffic management.

HWY 24 OVERPASS AT MCB FRONT GATE HAS BEEN CLOSED DUE TO STRUCTURAL DAMAGE.
TRAFFIC EXITING THE FRONT GATE WILL BE LIMITED TO HWY 24 EASTBOUND (TOWARDS
SWANSBORO) ONLY. ENTRANCE TO MCB VIA THE FRONT GATE WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE TO
EASTBOUND TRAFFIC ON HWY 24. THESE RESTRICTIONS WILL REMAIN IN PLACE UNTIL
FURTHER NOTICE. HWY 24 WILL REMAIN OPEN TO ROUTINE EAST/WEST TRAFFIC."

Hopefully I'll get an email when it's opened again.


EDIT:
Got another email from my FRO. An update and explanation for the gate closing.

"The following is a camp Lejeune Press Advisory.

October 13, 2009

Damage to Highway 24 overpass causes restricted lane use

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - Traffic flow over the Hwy 24 overpass at Camp Lejeune's
main gate has been restricted due to structural damage suffered when the
overpass was struck by a semi-truck passing under the overpass today at
approximately 6:30 a.m. There were no injuries, and the state immediately
dispatched structural engineers to inspect the damage.

Pending final inspection results, outgoing traffic through the main gate will
be reduced to one lane across the overpass to westbound Hwy 24, and one lane
to eastbound Hwy 24. Base personnel are highly encouraged to use the Snead's
Ferry gate for southbound travel, Bear Creek gate for eastbound travel to
Swansboro and Hubert areas, and the Piney Green gate for travel to the
Jacksonville area. These restrictions will remain in place until further
notice. Hwy 24 will remain open to routine east/west traffic.

Military and civilian personnel of tenant commands should contact their
supervisor or Command Duty Officer for further instructions."

Hope this is of use to some of you!

Hubby and I were wondering what was going on. I had two appts today at the Naval Hospital and it literally took us 2 hours to get to the Naval Hospital when usually we're there in 20 minutes. It didn't help that I also had to take my dog to the vet and run several other errands down that way! Ugh.
