Off-base traffic signal light outage impacts base
/ Published February 19, 2018
TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. --
Due to a vehicle hitting a signal control cabinet, the off-base traffic lights are out at 29th and Air Depot and the I-40 off-ramps. This is north of the base near the Tinker Main (BX/Commissary) Gate. Stop signs have been placed in the area. Recommend all motorists use extreme caution in this area and avoid it as much as possible.
The Tinker Main Gate is open but congestion is expected during morning and afternoon commutes. Recommend using an alternate gate. Beginning Tuesday morning, the Eaker Gate (East of the Main Gate) will extend hours beyond the posted times to ease congestion.
Midwest City officials are diligently working to bring the lights back to full functional status. Check the Tinker Facebook page for updates.
