News Alert: Tulley Gate temporarily closed due to road erosion
Tulley Gate, the 24-7 security gate where visitors and commercial vehicles access Fort Belvoir, was shut down indefinitely Aug. 7 due to damage to the roadway, according to a Facebook post by the Army installation's Public Affairs Office (PAO).
Public Affairs Specialist Paul Lara told On the MoVe that a spot of road got washed out from underneath, necessitating an investigation into the extent of the erosion.
While Tulley Gate is closed, the garrison has temporarily opened Lieber Gate as the 24-hour access control point and commercial gate. Located across from Pence Gate along Richmond Highway, Lieber Gate first opened in August 2019 but closed during the COVID-19 pandemic due to a staffing shortage.
According to Fort Belvoir Security, all visitors without approved passes and commercial traffic are being processed through the temporary Visitor Control Center located at Lieber Gate. On weekends, visitors and commercial traffic will be processed at Lieber Gate by the on-duty Department of the Army security guards.
Pence and Kingman Gates also can be used for daily operations, said the PAO.
