Comment: I would like to comment about a safety hazard at the Rivers Avenue gate. The safety barriers on the right are difficult to see after dark and present a possible safety hazard.

Response: Thank you for your concern for our service members and civilian motorists on Joint Base Charleston. Our safety offices, along with the installation's Civil Engineer Squadron, have completed a survey of the Rivers Avenue gate. The barriers are in place to prevent vehicles from accessing the base without authorization. The barrier you identified is definitely a safety hazard after dark and will be fixed by placing reflective material on the barrier as soon as possible.

Again, thank you for your feedback.
