Unintended Consequences Of Laying Off A Security Guard

NASA Langley gate access change hurts Poquoson businesses, Daily Press
“A change to employee access at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton is having a negative impact on Poquoson businesses, and doesn’t appear to be resolved. NASA Langley’s back gate on Wythe Creek Road used to be open to both incoming and outgoing traffic from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. In October incoming access was changed to 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. only because budget cuts eliminated the gate guard, said NASA Langley spokesman Rob Wyman. The new traffic pattern added an additional two-mile drive for employees to get back into work via the front gate. Since then Poquoson businesses, and particularly restaurants, have seen a drop in lunchtime business.”
