Starting Monday, July 1, Air Force Drive will close while the road is resurfaced, and additional parking is added to Lot 10. Drivers can still park in the gravel lot (Lot 11).

A shuttle bus stop will be added to the loop for people parking in Lot 11. Drivers can also access the PVAMC campus using Wolcott St. to Regent Ave. or Pleasant Valley Pky. to Chalkstone Ave.

We appreciate your patience while we make these long-term improvements to Air Force Drive.
