Fort Bragg to change visitor procedures
Posted October 29, 2013
Fort Bragg, N.C. — Fort Bragg officials on Tuesday announced a change in procedure for all visitors to the post who are not Department of Defense employees.
Starting Nov. 15, all non-defense visitors driving a private vehicle must proceed to the visitor’s center on All-American Freeway to obtain a pass. Visitors will be checked against the National Criminal Information Center database, and they will no longer be able to enter the post through Knox Street, Randolph Street or Longstreet Road without first obtaining a pass or entry card.
All commercial vehicle operators will need to enter the Knox Street Truck Plaza for a personal inspection, vehicle inspection and to obtain a pass. The Longstreet Access Control Plaza will remain a 24-hour alternate truck plaza as long as all personnel in the commercial vehicle have either a current automated entry card or pass.
The Honeycutt Road Access Control Plaza will accept commercial vehicle traffic from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. weekdays and 1 p.m. to 5 a.m. weekends if all passengers in the commercial vehicle have either a current automated entry card or pass.
The new procedures will not affect Department of Defense personnel, Common Access Card holders, retirees, family members, government contractors or those who already possess a current automated card or pass from entering post in a non-commercial vehicle.
Passes for non-DOD employees can be obtained for up to 10 days. DOD-sponsored visitor passes are available for up to 30 days. Potential entrants must have valid government-issued identification, valid vehicle registration and know their Social Security number.
