The Army's largest post is tackling the problem of traffic gridlock with a lane for high occupancy vehicles.
Fort Bragg is converting one incoming lane at its Yadkin Road gate. The lane for cars with two or more people will open in January. The goal is to reduce the number of cars that cause gridlock.
More than 150,000 automobiles enter Fort Bragg on a daily basis. By 2015, those numbers are expected to significantly increase. Fort Bragg will grow from its current 50,000 soldiers and civilians to about 70,000 by 2013, making it the largest Army post in terms of population.
