ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Dozens of air traffic control towers are on the chopping block.  Now, the FAA is expected to announce cuts to 189 towers staffed by contractors. It’s all because of the forced spending cuts that went into effect earlier this month. Some of the potentially affected towers are practically brand new.

The towers will close on April, 7th.
