Frequently Asked Questions



  • Q: Why is there a traffic problem and delay at the gates on JBPHH?
  • A: JBPHH processes over 200k entries to over eight entry control points (ECPs) per week. Although most traffic is predictable, vehicular incidents off-base, old infrastructure constraints, equipment malfunctions, turn-arounds from individuals without proper base access, uncoordinated tenant unit exercises/reporting changes all contribute to varying traffic patterns that impact peak loads at installation ECPs.
  • Q: What is JBPHH and the State of Hawaii doing to better the traffic situation on base?
  • A: JBPHH's JB2 Security team is always evaluating methods to better prepare for traffic fluctuations and incidents. JBPHH is also in the process of planning ECP/equipment improvements and diligently working with the State Department of Transportation on inbound signage changes to ensure appropriate and accurate information flow.


  • Q: What is being done to accommodate in the increase flow of traffic at the gates?
  • A: JBPHH is working with tenant and supported commands to ensure ECP augmentees can be available for increased demand and/or unforeseen posturing needs. We appreciate tenant and supported commands providing maximum information to JBPHH on exercises and work-hour changes.


  • Q: Why are there so many abandoned vehicles on base?
  • A: Abandoned vehicles are an issue across Oahu. As a result of irresponsible owners and a decrease in global steel prices, vehicles are often left behind when service-members PCS or do not want the property.


  • Q: What efforts are being made to remedy the abandoned vehicles on base?
  • A: JBPHH is continuing to work through the lengthy legal process to ensure vehicles suspected of being abandoned are properly tagged and efforts made to contact the registered owner.


  • Q: What actions are currently being taken to lessen the impact of the abandoned vehicles on base?
  • A: JBPHH will continue to hold bi-monthly abandoned vehicle auctions to ensure we can liquidate the abandoned property and recover costs associated with handling the vehicles. JBPHH is also working with tenant and supported commands to inform their service-members of the impacts and hold their personnel accountable.
