Main Gate Changes At Naval Station Everett

May 31, 2016


Here’s a tip from having to make a sudden lane change or U-turn if you’re headed to Naval Station Everett over the summer. They’ve changed the main entrance. Here’s the scoop from Kristin Ching at the base…

Naval Station Everett

This entrance is closed for the summer.

Naval Station Everett

Use this entrance at 18th street like you are going to Marina Village but bear left.

Naval Station Everett’s main gate is scheduled to be closed for construction from May 31 to approximately September 1, 2016. Vehicle traffic will be redirected through the base’s north gate which is accessible on 18th Street from West Marine View Drive. The temporary closure supports construction of a new canopy over the sentry stations at the gate.

During high traffic periods in the morning, vehicles will be allowed to exit only through the main gate from 5:30 a.m. – 8 a.m.

Pedestrian access at the main gate will not be affected. The Visitor Control Center located just outside of the main gate will remain open for business at their regular hours.

The contract was awarded to National Native American Construction for $643,719.

Construction working hours will normally be from 7 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., but there may be occasional exceptions.

The Navy and prime contractor have made efforts to minimize disruptions to base personnel and the community during construction. Completing the project in a safe and timely manner is a high priority.

The new canopy will improve the structure of the security gate and provide additional weather protection for sentries at their stations.
