ACTION LINE: West Gate road markings could be better

September 24, 2015

Q:The outbound traffic markings on the road immediately outside the West Gate are not painted appropriately. In my opinion, this is a safety hazard and has nearly caused an accident on more than one occasion as people rush to get off base.

ACTION LINE: Closures associated with AFMC Family Days

September 17, 2015

We received a number of comments regarding the closure of the West Gate on Sept. 4, the Friday leading up to the Labor Day weekend. 

I want to sincerely apologize as we did not properly inform the base populace of the closure. Although gate hours are posted at the West Gate entrance, I agree that we should have done a better job advertising the fact that the West Gate is not open on AFMC Family Days. 

We are internally reviewing closure and service reduction rules of engagement for various functions related to these events.

ACTION LINE: Hill traffic affects UTA bus schedule

September 10, 2015

Q: I use mass transit to and from the base. Due to the extra traffic, because of the closure of the Southwest Gate and the poor design of the traffic lights at the interstate intersection just off base, I am now missing the train 50 percent of the time. Utah Transit Authority has already adjusted their schedule, but it’s not enough.
