Regardless of where you are coming from, you should plan on entering Fort Lee from one of the two gates located on State Highway 36. Driver’s entering Fort Lee in the coming months should remain flexible and call the Fort Lee Police Station at (804) 734-7400 shortly before arriving as the 24-hour gate may on occasion shift from the Lee Gate to the Sisisky Gate for various reasons.

From Interstate 95: To get to Highway Route 36 from Interstate 95 take the Temple Avenue exit, continue on Temple Avenue past the Southpark Shopping Mall and through a wooded area for about three miles. Temple Avenue will end at Highway 36. Drivers of large panel vans, trucks, RVs or pulling a paneled trailer need to take a left onto Highway 36 and follow the signs to the Shop Road Gate; this also applies to anyone making a DITY move. If you are driving a passenger vehicle, take a right on to Highway 36 and drive about a mile to the next stoplight. At the light, take a left into the Lee Avenue Gate. Those drivers needing to register their vehicle should pull into the right lane. The Fort Lee 24-hour visitors’ center will be on the right hand side. You must stop there to get a temporary pass to enter post. This is where you will need to present your driver’s license, proof of insurance and registration.

If you pass the entrance too the Petersburg Battlefield you have gone to far and need to turn around.
