CITY TO WIDEN CACTUS AVE AT MAIN GATE

The City of Moreno Valley will start construction to widen Cactus Ave soon and continue through January 2014. The construction area will start where the north-bound, high-speed off ramp from I-215 meets Cactus Ave. all the way through to Veterans Way. This may cause some disruptions with entering the installation and possible traffic delays. For now, the main gate will remain open as usual. However, the project will be monitored for the duration of the construction in order to ensure the safety of March employees and Moreno Valley citizens. Please be patient and cautious while operating your motor vehicle in and around the construction zone.

NEW TRACK  OFFICIALLY MEASURES 1.5 MILES

An off-base contractor was hired to certify the distance of the new track used for F2F testing. This company has experience certifying facilities used by NCAA schools and USA Track & Field, which is the United States national governing body for the sports of track and field, cross country running, road running and race walking. After six measurements and calculations of the track, they have certified it as exactly one-half mile per lap. Formal certification documentation is expected any day and will be published in as many communications outlets as possible to notify our members and mission partners.
