Starting Thursday, May 19, 2022, the Selfridge West Gate at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland will be open the following hours:

  • Monday-Wednesday and Friday: 6-9 a.m. (inbound and outbound) and 3-6 p.m., (outbound only).
  • Thursday: 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. (inbound and outbound)
  • CLOSED AETC Family Days and federal holidays

The Luke West Gate will close permanently.

After careful consideration, the 802nd Security Forces Squadron leadership made the decision to open Selfridge West in order to keep traffic moving along Military Drive during high-traffic times.

Many factors were considered for this adjustment including the type and severity of accidents due to inattentive drivers at the Luke gate intersection, and significant issues with Force Protection compliance for Luke West.

This change also affects Basic Military Training graduation attendees, who will be directed to the Valley-Hi gate for parking lots 1 and 2, and to the Selfridge gate for lot 3.

SFS officials ask that personnel to give themselves extra time in the morning to adjust to the new traffic pattern.
