Dover Air Force Base DAFB is located in Kent County, Delaware. The base is situated 3.5 miles southeast of the center of Dover, Delaware, the state capital. The base covers approximately 3,902 acres of land area including annexes, easements, and leased property. Dover AFB has two active airfields. The north-south airfield at Dover AFB divides the main Base into two primary sections. Open space, recreational areas, and limited amounts of industrial uses are located east of the airfield. The land uses west of the airfield and east of U.S. Route 113 are industrial, airfield operations, administrative, community, medical, and some unaccompanied personnel housing. Eagle Heights Military Family House MFH, temporary lodging quarters, a golf course, and additional unaccompanied personnel housing are located west of U.S. Route 113 and east of St. Jones River. The surrounding areas consist primarily of cropland and wetlands, with the Saint Jones River running adjacent to the southwestern corner of the base. The proposed project identified in the AF Form 813 to demolish eight facilities to make room for a new efficient air freight terminal. The total area of all the buildings to be demolished is 43,255 square meters. All of the buildings are located in the same vicinity and all are in the footprint for the new air freight terminal. The eight facilities being proposed for demolition, along with a brief description are provided below. The proposed project is needed to make room for the construction of a new air freight tern1inal because the existing air freight terminal was extremely damaged during a snow storm.
