Kirtland Air Force Base Force Support Squadron – UpNext magazine link
From the Kirtland Air Force Base App – Eubank Gate Security Improvement Project – Kirtland Air Force Base (KAFB) will soon begin a construction project at the Eubank gate to address security concerns and provide access to the new NNSA Albuquerque Complex.
The 12-month construction project is expected to begin in October 1, 2019. Those who live, work, and provide services to the base will experience impacts and delays. This will especially affect access to and from the Base during peak hours. However, delays are not really expected until January 2020.
