PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — A three-phase, half-million dollar paving project will commence mid-July bringing a safer and smoother driving experience to those who frequent the east side of Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado.

Those who work and visit Peterson East and who access or depart the East Gate will be most affected during the approximately 60-day project, but all Peterson AFB patrons should be aware of possible traffic impacts across the installation.

The East Gate will remain open, both for entrance and exit, throughout the paving project. Traffic flow to and from Peterson East will also remain open, although delays may occur.

Each phase is projected to be two weeks in duration and construction. Phase 1 will impact Stewart Avenue, near base housing, from Langley Street to the East Gate intersection at the end of the civilian runway. Phase 2 will impact the East Gate from the end of the civilian runway to security access road near Marksheffel. Phase 3 will be a continuation of the paving ending before the old East Gate.

The traffic plan will involve single lane traffic, flagging personnel and automated mobile traffic lights to ensure continued traffic flow to the east side of the installation.  

Around the installation there will be an increase in heavy construction trucks hauling asphalt, so be mindful of construction vehicles and the freshly laid tar. Weather and building materials could affect the duration of this plan, but the project is expected to be completed by mid-September.

Please contact the Peterson AFB Civil Engineer Customer Service Flight at (719) 556-4030 with questions or concerns.
