Fairfield, Travis School District and Travis Air Force Base officials have geared up for the 14-month-long closure of Peabody Road that starts June 12 with detour routes, an expanded school busing program and open-for-business signage for affected businesses.
Peabody Road between Vanden Road and Huntington Drive is being closed for approximately 14 months during the construction of the Fairfield/Vacaville Train Station and Peabody Road Overcrossing Project.
There are no plans at the moment to change gate times at Travis Air Force Base because of the closure, according to the base’s Public Affairs Office. The base is publicizing a detour route that runs west from Peabody Road along Cement Hill Road and then turns south along Clay Bank Road to Air Base Parkway. There is also the route to the base’s North Gate via Canon Road.
