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.

ACTION LINE: Safety first for Hill’s ground maintenance personnel

September 3, 2015

Q: In the last two weeks I have witnessed three near-accidents on Wardleigh Road. These incidents involved a grounds maintenance person driving a riding mower on Wardleigh Road in the hours of darkness with no headlights, brake lights or any lighting at all on one of the mowers. None of the drivers had on any PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) on either, such as helmets. In one of the incidents the individual was driving at about 20 mph in a 40 mph zone during one of the busiest traffic times.
