Motorists encouraged to avoid Benning Road’s “Stone Gate”

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - Motorists are advised to avoid the area outside Fort Benning's "Stone Gate" on Benning Road between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on August 31.

The U.S./Mexico Caravan for Peace has planned a stop at the Stone Gate on Friday, one of 22 on a 6,000-mile caravan that will end in Washington, D.C.

Organizers of the vigil are expecting more than 100 supporters to participate.

The gate will not be closed, but heavy foot traffic and parked vehicles may cause congestion on Benning Road.

The access control points on I-185, Harmony Church and Eddy Bridge will not be affected by this event.  Motorists are encouraged to access the installation at one of these gates.
