updates

  • Jan. 23, 2018On Jan. 16 when Gott Gate closed down for a construction project, the new Pegasus Gate opened up just a quarter mile south on South Air Depot Boulevard.
  • Jan. 9, 2018: Informational pamphlets on the upcoming construction will be handed out at Gott Gate.
  • Jan. 5, 2018: New stop signs have been installed on Perimeter Road, which will initiate a new flow of traffic. Inbound gate traffic will have the right-of-way, making what is currently thru-traffic, stop. These changes come as a result of the upcoming gate construction project which kicks off Jan. 12.
  • Dec. 15, 2017The Pegasus Gate will open at 5:30 a.m. on Jan. 16, enhancing security on Tinker Air Force Base. Four of the base gates will receive various upgrades, most visible will be the implementation of serpentine “s-curves” that are currently installed at other gates across the installation.
  • Dec. 7, 2017: A $9.7 million four-gate construction project is set to kick off in mid-January that will enhance the security on Tinker Air Force Base. Over a three-year period, four gates will close one at a time, in order to meet with Department of Defense facility criteria for entry control points. The majority of the construction will involve the southern perimeter of the installation. Gott Gate, which will close at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 12, will be the first to receive the facelift. After that gate’s upgrades, which are anticipated to take 11 months, the focus will shift directly east to the Truck Gate followed by the Piazza Gate, and then the Eaker Gate.
