COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado -- A renovation of the Air Force Academy chapel has been canceled after funds were transferred to a Florida base.
Officials at the academy about 57 miles south of Denver say they planned to close the chapel for work beginning Jan. 1 but delayed repairs in December. The newspaper reports the extensive work to repair leaks in the chapel was the most prominent of 61 projects that have been canceled due to budget changes.
Air Force officials say repairs to Tyndall will cost more than $3 billion after Hurricane Michael damaged all 1,200 of its buildings in October.
