Main Gate Re-opened at Camp Beauregard back  
Date of Record: August 11, 2008

The City of Pineville now has another "gateway" it can be proud of. The Louisiana National Guard, headquartered at Camp Beauregard in Pineville, has re-opened its front gate, which will serve as a security checkpoint at the main entrance and exit to the base. The new gate provides a distinctive appearance for the Main Training Site Headquarters for Soldiers and Airmen of the Louisiana National Guard, and can be easily seen between the new Petron Commercial Park and the Pineville Wal-Mart, on Hwy. 116.

The $3.2 million project also provides special features for security and is in full compliance with Force Protection Anti-Terrorism requirements. The new building houses a guardhouse area as well as areas for mechanical equipment, electrical/telephone equipment and latrine facilities. The new security checkpoint is steel-framed and self-contained, and is hardened and equipped with bullet-resistant glazing for threat protection.
