The Keesler Air Force Base main gate closure is extended to Oct. 21, 2019 due to issues with construction on White Ave in Biloxi. The adjusted gate operations for the White Avenue and Meadows Drive gates that began in September will continue as Biloxi installs new water, sewer and storm drains at the intersection of White Ave and Father Ryan Ave. The Pass Road gate will remain open and unaffected.
During this time, Keesler gate hours are as follows:
- Meadows Road Gate (Gate 1): Open to inbound and outbound traffic under 24 hour operations.
- White Avenue Gate: Closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
- Pass Road Gate: Will remain open 24 hours.
- Visitor Center: Monday through Friday operations will move to both the Pass Road and Meadows Road Gates. The vetting process will remain the same.
It is advised that base personnel attempt to get visitor passes issued during the week. Please be flexible as you may experience a longer than usual wait for a visitor pass due to increased visitor traffic. All drivers in the surrounding areas should continue to plan ahead for heavy traffic in and around Keesler Air Force Base, particularly during the early morning and evening hours.
All gate hours will resume normal hours of operation when the off-base construction project is complete.
