Camp Shelby opens new Southgate entrance

CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) - Traffic flow in and out of Camp Shelby should be improved following the opening of the post's newly-renovated south gate.

Friday morning, top Mississippi Army National Guard officials cut a ribbon to officially open the new gate.

Work on the new southgate, along with renovation on the post's north and east gates, took about two years to complete, at a total cost of about $1 million.
