Tower work halted

GULFPORT, Miss. - Work has halted on the nearly completed air traffic control tower at the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport. The Federal Aviation Administration told contractors to stop work on the nearly $12 million project in Gulfport and others at airports nationwide after Congress failed Friday to pass legislation for the work to continue. The current control tower is handling flights. (Source: Sun Herald, 07/25/11)
