Tinker AFB will never forget...
Members of the 72nd Medical Support Squadron planted a tree today in remembrance of A1C Lakesha Richardson Levy who was among the 168 who lost their lives in the Oklahoma City Alfred P. Murrah bombing on April 19, 1995. The tree is an American Elm sapling a descendant of the Survivor Tree that still stands at the bombing site. Tinker AFB lost two of its own that day; the other victim was A1C Cartney McRaven of the former 32nd Combat Communications Squadron. Pictured left to right: John Krupovage, Natural Resource Manager, Carla Betts, Cynthia Jennings, SrA Juron Woods, and 1st Lt Caleb Arrington.

Team Tinker,
Winter weather has moved in to the area. The roads on base and surrounding areas have accumulated ice and travelers should use caution. Bridges and overpasses will ice up first. It appears that the main area of precipitation has moved through the area, but ice may remain. Use caution during your travels as this weather condition persists.

Update to Tinker AFB traffic signals:

The off-base lights at 29th and Air Depot are back on with some functionality. All lights at the intersection are working, but they are not fully sunchronized so the timing may be off. Continue to use caution at the intersection and use an alternate route if possible.

The city continues to work toward a permanent solution and due to parts availability expects to have the intersection back to full functionality by the end of the week.

OFF-BASE TRAFFIC SIGNAL LIGHT OUTAGE

Due to a vehicle hitting a signal control cabinet, the off-base traffic lights are out at 29th and Air Depot and the I-40 off-ramps. This is north of the base near the Tinker Main (BX/Commissary) Gate. Stop signs have been placed in the area. Recommend all motorists use extreme caution in this area and avoid it as much as possible.

The Tinker Main Gate is open but congestion is expected during morning and afternoon commutes. Recommend using an alternate gate (see map). Beginning Tuesday morning, the Eaker Gate (East of the Main Gate) will extend hours beyond the posted times to ease congestion.

Midwest City officials are diligently working to bring the lights back to full functional status. Check back here for additional updates or on the Tinker Website (www.tinker.af.mil).

Team Tinker members, did you know there are bicycles on base you can borrow for free? The first of the bike racks was installed in December near the dorms and the Vanwey Dining Facility. Bikes can be checked out in four-hour segments. Each multispeed, belt-driven bike features front and rear lights, plus a battery-powered GPS system that uses both generator and solar power. The GPS system allows the bike-share program to identify the location of each bike and a geo-fence ensures they stay on base.
