Russell Gate changes ahead

Russell Gate changes ahead

Beginning March 17, five of the six lanes of the Russell Parkway gate will be open to inbound-only traffic on weekdays between 6 and 8 a.m.

The change will increase 'throughput' on to the base during the morning, without compromising security.

It is the result of considerable coordination involving base and county officials, as well as feedback about morning traffic concerns from the entire Team Robins workforce.

"We want to try something new and different to solve a persistent problem," said Col. Chris Hill, Installation commander. "This is a test. If it proves to be a success, we will work together with our mission partners to ensure gate operations are sustainable."
