Throughout Joint Base San Antonio, installation entry control points, otherwise known as the base gates, will undergo multiple construction projects starting January 2019. These necessary construction projects will enhance force protection capability across JBSA, and when complete, will enhance the safety and security of the workforce, family and visitors. This construction will impact mission partners, commercial deliveries and visitors across JBSA.
