Due to a growing concern for vehicular safety at the Shop Road Gate, installation leadership is working with the Virginia Department of Transportation to install a traffic light at the exit.

Also, the Shop Road Gate exit lane at Jefferson Park will be expanded to alleviate congestion existing on post. Construction began Tuesday, and with delays to be expected, motorists are advised to plan accordingly and use alternate routes.

The “Traveller” will continue to provide updates as work on the gate continues.
