GETTING INTO NIH
Once the construction of the fence surrounding the NIH Bethesda campus is complete and the entrances fully operational, there will be a total of eight vehicle/pedestrian access gates and nine stand-alone pedestrian access gates.
All vehicle access gates will have a security guard, with pedestrian access available during business hours. The other nine pedestrian gates will be accessed electronically. Equipped with an electronic security system, expected to be in place before the summer, the pedestrian portals will allow NIH employees entry "just by waving their NIH ID badge in front of a card reader," says Arturo Giron, associate director for security and emergency response.
For added security, the pedestrian-only portals actually require two successive ID checksfirst in front of the gate and then in front of an entryway to the campus.
For more information on the perimeter fence and its access gates, contact David Chung, Physical Security Management, at 301-496-6893.
