6/18/2007 - MACDILL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla.  -- Getting in and out of MacDill via the Dale Mabry Gate will be a bit more difficult, but it's all for a good cause, as work continues to improve security, safety and traffic flow at base entry control facilities.

Construction began June 11, when a temporary traffic plan went into effect until July 8. Expect long delays during peak traffic hours. When traffic patterns return to normal, expect minor delays until the project is completed Sept. 1.

A variable message will be posted on Dale Mabry Highway north of Interbay Boulevard reading: "Gate construction 6/11 to 7/8, expect delays."
