AIR FORCE ACADEMY – The Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel, which was originally scheduled to close for renovations on January 1, 2019, will now remain open until June 17.

It will be available to cadets and tourists, as well as for services that take place at the facility.

A written statement from the academy said the decision to remain open came because it took longer than expected to evaluate contract proposals for the project.

Once the chapel closes, the renovation and repair project at the National Historic Landmark is expected to take at least four years.

The Academy said that during the closure, cadets will have access to religious services at alternative locations.

According to the Academy, the Cadet Chapel is Colorado’s number one man-made attraction.

Hours of operation at the chapel are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday.
