PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. - Marksheffel Road, the road that accesses the east gate, hosts high-speed through traffic that regularly comes to a stop at the gate. Extending markings for the right turn only lane on southbound Marksheffel Road should reduce sudden, high speed merges into the left lane. They will also be adding a new speed limit sign.
