The Air Force Academy will the cut north gate access for visitors from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., starting July 1 in a budget-cutting move.

The North Gate is off of Exit 156 on Interstate 25, 14 miles north of downtown Colorado Springs.

Those with military identification cards will be able to use the North Gate operating hours for Department of Defense cardholders will be 5:30 a.m.-10 p.m.

This change cuts the number of hours the academy is open to the public by two.

"We don't think it will have an impact as long as people know the hours," said academy spokesman Meade Warthen.

Late night military traffic is being routed through the south gate.

The academy reported the change is due to budget constraints.
