    Fort Hood gate closures.

    Advertisements
    If you live on the east side of post or come onto post through these gates at all, this might be good information to know.

    From the III Corps Facebook Page:

    TWO GATE CLOSURES BEGIN JULY 8: Until further notice, two access control points, the Frank Mayborn Gate and the Highway 195 Gate, both located on the east end of the installation off of Rancier Avenue, will close each week day beginning Monday.
    The Mayborn Gate will close to inbound traffic at 7:30 a.m., and to outbound traffic at 8 a.m. The Highway 195 Gate, adjacent to the Mayborn Gate, will close to both inbound and outbound traffic at 7:30 a.m. Both gates will reopen to in and outbound traffic no later than 5 p.m. each week day.

    Now I'm going to have to drive all the way to main gate just to get off post, ugh.

    What neighborhood do you live in? There are several other gates that side of post.

    Yeah I guess you are about halfway between Main and 10th St.

    Apparently the guy was trying to postpone it again by hiring an attorney now but the judge turned it down. They start jury selection on the 9th.
