Construction at USAFA gates to effect traffic

U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. --

Traffic patterns will change to accommodate construction projects slated to last through August 11 at the North and South Gates.

 

Workers are building canopies over both gates, vehicle inspection stations, and new curbs and gutters near the gates, according to an email from Derek Damian, the 10th Civil Engineering Squadron’s construction inspector.

 

“In coordination with the Colorado Department of Traffic, notice of closure will be flashing on information boards on I-25 to inform travelers used to accessing the base via the South Gate during these hours,” he said.
