BACKGROUND The 1995 Base Realignment and Closure BRAC requirements realigned approximately half of Kelly Air Force Base AFB to JBSA-Lackland and transferred the remainder to what is now known as Port San Antonio PSA, managed by a local redevelopment authority. PSA currently retains many government-maintained facilities referred to as leaseback facilities. More Air Force missions have been moved into PSA leaseback facilities because JBSALackland has outgrown its existing buildings and infrastructure and does not have suitable AntiTerrorism Force Protection ATFP compliant buildingsfacilities. JBSA-Lackland is preparing a long range master plan, known as the Go West Plan, under which missions currently at PSA would relocate to JBSA-Lackland proper over a 40 year period. At the present time, the Go West Plan has three independent components 1 constructing a new entry control point and connecting road, 2 relocating airfield operations from the PSA property to the west side of the runway, and 3 relocating administrative and warehouse space from PSA to JBSA-Lackland property. Because all three components are located in the same geographical area, this proposal to implement the first component includes acquisition of the land for all three components. The purpose of this project is to implement the first component of the Go West Plan by upgrading and relocating the current Growdon Road Commercial Vehicle Inspection Area and Entry Control Point CVIAECP and relocating Growdon Road further west from its existing location. The upgrade and relocation of the CVIAECP and Growdon Road are needed to allow for more efficient and effective screening of commercial vehicles thereby avoiding congestion and extended wait times resulting from the current configuration. The relocation will also help to reduce conflicts between commercial traffic at the existing Growdon Gate and traffic related to the 433rd Airlift Wings mission-critical training operations.
