In effort to gather data for future gate operation constructs, the 9 SFS is going to conduct a gate traffic study from 19-23 March 2018. Beginning at 0500 on 19 Mar and continuing until 2100 on 23 Mar, all gates will be open 24 hours a day. During this time we ask that all personnel use the gates that are most conducive to their work and lifestyle. Upon completion of the study we will use the data in conjunction with multiple other sources of data to help determine which gates stay open and for what hours during different Force Protection environments. Our goal is to create a positive effect for the most amount of people possible, while maintaining a safe and secure environment for all. Thank you for all of your support.
