JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — The Midway Park main gate at Camp Lejeune, N.C., will be closed to outbound traffic on Monday, April 9, for two weeks, according to a base release.

Base housing residents and their visitors will be rerouted to the gate by the Midway Park Theater through April 20 while construction is being done at the main gate to install tire deflation devices.

Installation of the devices is part of the base’s latest effort to tighten security there. Earlier this month, base officials closed a highway that runs through the base to the public. Only Department of Defense sticker holders can use the road.

Tire deflation devices will be installed at each gate by this fall. The next gate closing is scheduled in May at the Piney Green gate.
