3-year closure for Air Force Academy chapel renovations set to begin in September
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado has announced it will close its cadet chapel for extensive renovations beginning in September.
KOAA-TV reports the military academy says Sept. 3 is the final day scheduled for visits prior to the chapel’s three-year closure.
Officials say work crews are expected to remove furniture and conduct other preparation work between Sept. 3 and Nov. 1.
The Air Force says the funds were reallocated for repairs at Florida‘s Tyndall Air Force Base following Hurricane Michael in October 2018.
The chapel is registered as a national historic landmark.
