Delayed Closure for Control Tower at Salisbury Airport

Apr 06, 2013 -- 4:47am

Good news this morning for the control tower at the Salisbury-Ocean City: Wicomico Regional Airport. That’s because the FAA made the decision Friday to delay closing 149 airport control towers until June.

Salisbury’s tower will remain open for at least a few more weeks. 

Airport Manager Bob Bryant says the delay is good news and will give him some extra time to try and and come up with an answer to keeping his tower open past the June deadline.

The recent sequester in D.C. that cut nationwide funding is to blame for the forced closure of more than 200 small airport control towers
