Castle Airport Tower To Remain Open, For Now

Posted: Updated:
MERCED COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

     It looks like the air traffic control tower at a Merced County airport will be staying open, at least for a little while, anyway.

     The Federal Aviation Administration recently put out a list of air traffic control facilities across the country that could be shut down starting April 7, and the Castle Airport tower in Atwater was one of them.

    But, it seems the FAA has had a change of heart.

    The agency announced it will now postpone that closure till June 15th and will reconsider its decision after requests by several members of congress including valley congressman Jim Costa.
