Feedback Fridays

By Brig. Gen. Caroline M. Miller 502d Air Base Wing Commander

Feedback Fridays is a weekly forum that aims to connect the 502d Air Base Wing with members of the Joint Base San Antonio community. Questions are collected during commander’s calls, town hall meetings and throughout the week.

If you have a question or concern, please send an email to jbsapublicaffairs@gmail.com using the subject line “Feedback Fridays.” Questions will be further researched and published as information becomes available.

Q. It has been more than a year since I wrote to the Civil Engineers concerning the disrepair of the pavement leaving the Luke East Gate at JBSA-Lackland and it still has not been repaired.

What seems to be the problem getting it repaired? It is widely used and an embarrassment to the United States Air Force. Does anyone care?  

It is to the point that vehicles leaving the base could have damage to their vehicles from this. What can be done to fix this situation?

A. The 802nd Civil Engineer Squadron has been actively executing key road repair projects across Joint Base San Antonio in the last few years and is aggressively working through the long list of requirements that still remain. 

To that end, the civil engineer squadron, in partnership with the 502nd Contracting Squadron, just awarded a contract to replace the pop-up bollards at Luke East Gate, which will include the repair of sections of the road that are in poor shape. 

The project will start in August 2021 and is estimated to be completed at the end of this calendar year.
