JBSA-Fort Sam Houston Visitor Centers Construction
The visitor control centers at Walters Street and BAMC are slated to undergo construction to install ballistic glass on the customer service countertops from May 20 to Nov. 28. These projects will be offset, with Walters VCC occurring first. During installation, services will be moved to a temporary trailer located outside of each facility. Service hours will not be affected, however, this is expected to cause delays in customer service wait times, so please plan accordingly. The VCC supervisors will monitor wait times and, if necessary, divert customers to alternate locations. Walters VCC: May 20, through mid-August; currently, wait times average between 15 to 30 minutes, with graduation days extending to an hour. Please plan for longer wait times during this construction. BAMC VCC: mid-August through Nov. 28; currently, wait times vary between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. Please plan for longer wait times during this construction.
