Back gate at 4 Wing Cold Lake will allow access again

*An error was made in the previous version of this story. The corrected times are below.

4 Wing Cold Lake’s “back gate” will have limited access starting Friday, January 24 until further notice.

In a Public Service Announcement earlier today, 4 Wing air base said that the back gate situated at Kingsway road will be *open during the day and then close daily from 10:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m.

CFB Cold Lake apologize if this limited access causes any inconvenience.

The Canadian Armed Forces continually adapt our force protection posture to meet the demands of an evolving security environment.

Starting Friday, January 24, guard stations at the front and back entrances will be manned, at random times, to conduct identification checks for all who enter the Department of National Defence establishment.

Military Police will also be conducting random vehicle searches, which may include vehicles of the general public.
