Posted: Updated:
BARKSDALE AFB, LA (KSLA) -

After more than a year of planning, Barksdale Air Force Base will finally get a new gate on its east side.

The 2nd Bomb Wing hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday for its new Bodcau Gate. Once completed, the gate will be a limited access gate with open hours mainly devoted to school-related traffic.

Base officials say they worked with several community partners for more than a year to get the gate and silent railroad crossing project approved and designed.
