FORT JACKSON, S.C. (AP/WVOC) - Federal budget cuts are forcing reduced hours at Fort Jackson's gates.
Officials say the cuts are forcing furloughs for security guards at the Army's largest training installation.
Spokesman Pat Jones says the changes take effect today, and the biggest adjustment involves the total closure of Gate 5 off Leesburg Road.
Gate 2, which enters the installation off Forest Drive and Interstate 77, remains open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Gate 4 off I-77 and Percival Road is closed on weekends and open only from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays.
Gate 1 off Jackson Boulevard and I-77 is open from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. and outbound only from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
