Due to recent national security concerns, installation law enforcement will continue to conduct 100 percent **ID checks and an increase in vehicle inspections for the foreseeable future at all MCBQ gates. Travelers can expect increased wait times at entrances and an increase in traffic near the exits of I-95 and Route 1. **All adult passengers should be prepared to present ID at the gate - state, or federal issued. Options for teens 16 years and older are: DoD dependent ID, driver's license/permit and student ID. If younger military children have DoD IDs, please have them available.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but the safety and security of the installation, personnel and family members remain a priority.
