Abstract:

The United States Air Force USAF is proposing to construct an outdoor running track located on Eielson AFB, Alaska. The quarter-mile track will be asphalt-covered and will include signage to designate start and finish points for Air Force fitness testing. Currently, a linear stretch of roadway on Arctic Avenue is utilized for fitness testing and does not meet Air Force Instruction AFI 36-2905, Fitness Program, effective 1 July 2010 guidelines. The Proposed Action is to construct an outdoor running track adjacent to the Baker Field House. The project site will be excavated to remove existing sod and filled above existing grade and base flood level with reclaimed asphalt pavement from the Golf taxiway. The quarter-mile track will be covered in two inches of asphalt and will include signage to designate start and finish points for Air Force fitness testing. Topsoil and seed will be added once the track is built. Approximately 3.4 acres of vegetation and 1,400 cubic yards of soils would be impacted with this alternative.
