Spring Break weekend officially kicks off today and traffic is expected to be heavy.
In response, Keesler Air Force Base is adjusting their gate schedule until Monday, April 15th. The main entrance at White Avenue is closed to car and pedestrian traffic from 6 p.m. today until 5 a.m. Monday. The Pass Road gate will remain open at all times.
If you’re headed to the visitor center, you’ll now need to go to the Meadows Road gate which will also stay open to all traffic for 24 hours.
However, while officials say the vetting process will be the same you might experience a longer than usual wait for a visitor pass.
