Newly constructed Gate 6 will open within days at Fort Gordon
FORT GORDON, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - We’re getting closer to the opening of the new and much-anticipated Gate 6 at Fort Gordon.
The official opening will be Oct. 25, but there will be a soft opening two days earlier for ID card holders, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.
Ahead of the opening, contractors will alter the old Gate 2 intersection signals to meet the new traffic pattern using Gate 6 as the main base entrance.
Beginning Oct. 25, drivers must use Gate 6 as the primary post entrance.
Gate 2 will be closed and only opened for emergency use in the future. Gate 3 is also closing down once the new gate is fully functional.
In conjunction with the gate project, a 2.4-mile, $15.7 million construction effort widened Gordon Highway from two to four, 12-foot travel lanes with a 44-foot depressed grass median and 10-foot outside rural shoulders.
