GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - If you work at the Gulfport Seabee Base, or you use the commissary on a regular basis, how you drive onto the base has just changed.
As of today, the Broad Avenue gate will only open Monday-Friday until 8:30am. It will be closed all other times of the day. The only 24 hour gate at the Seabee Base will be at Pass Road.
Base leaders say the gate access changes became necessary once the military began trimming budgets.
