New gate to open on East Reservation

This post was originally published by Barksdale Air Force Base - Top Stories

February 22, 2013 in Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana by clevine

Members of Team Barksdale and local community leaders held a groundbreaking ceremony for the official start of construction of the Bodcau Railroad crossing gate, here Feb. 22.

The Bodcau gate is planned to be completed in August of this year. When the gate is completed, it will save an estimated 15-20 minutes of travel time to and from Bossier City schools, main base and local shopping.

"The idea for this gate has been tossed around between different agencies for several years," said Richard Parent, Barksdale Real Property officer. "Within the last year, significant headway was made to get this gate into the construction phase. All the different government agencies involved have really come together to make this idea a reality."

The African American Heritage Committee here hosted the luncheon in celebration of the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 and the 1963 March on Washington.

The luncheon was not just a base event full of service members - it was an outreach to everyone.
