The North Dakota Air National Guard is rebuilding the main entrance of its base in Fargo.

The 119th Wing is in the process of moving the main entrance on University Drive to the north side of the base off 32nd Avenue North, a news release said.

The new entrance will have a designated shelter to inspect vehicles, mechanical vehicle barriers and a longer vehicle waiting area for traffic entering the base to reduce backed-up traffic.

"The location and vehicle shelter at the new entrance will give security forces personnel adequate room to respond if a suspicious item is found when inspecting vehicles," said Chief Master Sgt. James Gibson of the 119th Wing Security Forces Squadron.

Construction on the new entrance began in May and has an estimated completion date of Nov. 21, the release said.
