The project provides better facilities to inspect incoming automobile traffic. The facility enables more efficient processing of visitors with the construction of a new main entrance gate, a 2,960 square foot visitor registration office, vehicle inspection canopies with gate house and guard house, and active/passive barriers meeting anti-terrorism/force protection security requirements.

The project involved relocating the entrance gate and constructing a new asphalt five traffic lane entrance road into the installation so the new gate along Yearling Road can now handle higher volumes of traffic and minimize delays.
