Temporary Closure of the FLETC/Glynco Commercial (Back) Gate

For Immediate Release
August 17, 2010

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) will temporarily close the Vogel Road commercial gate located adjacent to Glynco Parkway beginning Monday, August 23, until November, due to a repaving project.

FLETC will open two temporary gates to assist the flow of traffic during the repaving. The two gates, which are located off the Glynco Parkway at Etheridge Drive and at Sidney Lanier Drive, will be open Monday through Friday only, excluding Federal holidays. The FLETC main gate, located off Chapel Crossing Road, will remain open.

The Sidney Lanier Drive gate will be open to FLETC and other credentialed individuals from 6 a.m. until 9 a.m., and in the afternoons, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.; this will help alleviate traffic during peak morning and afternoon times. No commercial vehicles will be allowed to enter through this gate.

Commercial vehicles must use the Etheridge Drive gate. This gate will be open exclusively for commercial traffic from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. After 9 a.m., this gate will be open to both commercial and employee vehicles until 6 p.m.
