Construction at the Main Gate at Dover Air Force Base continues and is now scheduled to be completed by July 6th. The purpose of the construction is to upgrade the gate infrastructure to sustain the safety and security of the installation. From approximately May 6th to July 6th, the Main Gate will be closed to inbound vehicle traffic but will still allow pedestrian and bicycle traffic to enter. Main ate outbound lanes will remain open to vehicle traffic 24/7. During Main Gate construction, the North Gate will be open 24/7 as the base’s primary entry and exit point, and the South Gate will be opened for privately owned vehicles to enter the base on weekdays between 6:30 a.m. and 8 a.m.
During peak traffic times, Security Forces personnel will direct traffic through the remaining gates as expeditiously as possible.
The Visitor Center will remain open during normal hours and will be accessible throughout all of April and July.
