Wallops Unveils New Badging Office
WALLOPS FLIGHT FACILITY, Va. – The Wallops security office is processing deliveries and issuing visitor and permanent party badges out of its new badging office, Bldg. N. 1, located on Atlantic Rd. just south of the main base gate.

Wallops Badging office, building N-1. Construction on the facility, designed to process increasing volumes of visitors and deliveries in a more timely and safe manner, wrapped up this summer.

From 2006 to 2010, the former badging office, Bldg. N-127, saw an increase in traffic from an average of 1,200 vehicles to approximately 3,000 vehicles per day. In addition, the facility processed more than 37,600 temporary badges in 2010, up from about 15,600 in 2006.

Wallops officials encourage all who work and do business with Wallops to help spread the word on the new facility and its location to cut down on traffic being turned around at the main gate.
