A four-year project to restore the Cadet Chapel at the U.S. Air Force Academy is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2018. The project includes fixing the leaks that have plagued the structure since it opened in 1963. Workers will also replace the chapel's aluminum housing, reinforce the structure, install a redundant water barrier, and remove and clean the 24,000 stained glass pieces contained the building's design. This will be the first large scale overhaul for the chapel since it opened in 1963. Alternate worship locations are being prepared to accommodate the diverse array of faith groups at the Academy. The Cadet Chapel is the most-visited man-made attraction in the state of Colorado.
