The Knox Street East Access Control Point located off Bragg Boulevard will permanently close Dec. 1 due to reduced traffic, Fort Bragg officials announced Friday.
“This decision is based on recent studies of gate usage at the Knox Street East gate access point,” Col. John Wilcox, the Fort Bragg garrison commander, said in a release. “By closing this gate, we can better align resources and help reduce wait times at other entry control points where the volume of traffic is greater.”
The Knox Street East gate, which leads to the Material Maintenance Directorate on East Fort Bragg, will continue normal operations until it closes for the final time at 1 p.m. on Nov. 30. Its hours are 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays. It is closed on weekends and holidays.
The Knox Street Truck Plaza Control Center will remain open for delivery and truck access to the installation for commercial vehicle use from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekends and federal holidays, the release said. No personally owned vehicles are allowed through the truck plaza, the release said.
