Rock County's airport on FAA tower closure list
JANESVILLE – The Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport is among the airport towers that the Federal Aviation Administration will close, according to a list released Friday.
The FAA announced it would close 149 federal contract towers over the four weeks beginning April 7, as part of the agency’s sequestration plan.
Towers in La Crosse, Kenosha, Waukesha, Oshkosh, Eau Claire and Waukegan, Ill., also are on the list, which can be viewed here.
Officials in the past have indicated the airport on Janesville’s south side would remain open, but traffic would be slowed.
