The United States Air Force Academy has reopened its gates to the public, three days after closing to visitors because of unspecified security concerns.
The 19,000 acre Air Force campus shut down Tuesday night after the Bush administration raised the color-coded domestic alert warning to orange, its second-highest level, based on intelligence warning of possible strikes.
Academy officials now say visitors will be allowed from 6:30 am until 8 pm, but could be subject to routine identification checks and random vehicle searches.
Events such as concerts and athletic events will also be open to the public, but visitors may encounter random searches at facility entrances.
