Air Traffic Control Towers Remain Operating

April 5, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. (My TV20 News at 10) --- The air traffic control tower at Detroit City Airport will remain open, for now.

It, and 23 others around the country, had been scheduled to close by Sunday.

President Obama is keeping them, and another 114 open until June 15 in order to deal with legal challenges.

Groups supporting the workers have filed a federal lawsuit challenging the FAA's order.

The agency ordered towers closed due to automatic spending cuts.
