Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, leaders cut the ribbon for the installation’s new commercial vehicle search area Jan. 28, 2022.

According to Robins Installation and 78th Air Base Wing Commander Col. Lindsay Droz, the $98 million dollar project at Gate 7 will increase vehicle throughput, reduce the amount of traffic overflowing onto Georgia Highway 247 just outside the installation, and lower the risk of vehicle accidents.

“The addition of three long queuing lanes is going to increase throughput and couldn’t have come at a better time,” Droz said. “As the base begins its large-scale mission transformation, it comes with multiple large in-scope military construction projects. That’s going to bring many, many commercial vehicles onto the installation.”
