Keesler Air Force Base Division Street gate

Thursday during Keesler Air Force Base’s first media day, members got a chance to take a look at the site of the future Division Street gate.
The Division Street Gate would replace the gate that is used as Keesler’s main entrance right now on White Avenue. Initial plans for the opening of this gate were released in June of this year.
There are many reasons why the current gate needs to be replaced, but one of them is the traffic that occurs in connection to the train tracks in front of the base. Keesler Civil Engineer Mark Malone said, “For our Division Street Gate, it is being designed and constructed in components. The first component is the entry road funded by the state of Mississippi through the City of Biloxi. We believe that construction on that will begin approximately in April. The design of the road has to be finished. So April is the start of construction on the road.”
Malone told News 25 that the entire project could take up to three years to complete.
