Highway 172 Remains Closed? Why?

I can't believe the Marine Corps lacks the mental horsepower to figure this one out: closing highway 172 to civilian traffic does next to nothing to improve base security. There are literally miles of coastline where ANYBODY with a boat could easily get on base. A motivated person could just swim across to the base from Sneads Ferry.

OTOH, this makes getting from Topsail Island to Hubert a huge PITA. My tax dollars at work? The state ought to close the bridge that extends from the back gate to Sneads Ferry. Let the Marine Corps take the long way around just like everybody else.
