TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A March groundbreaking is expected for a new air-traffic control tower at Tucson International Airport.

The Tucson Airport Authority board on Monday approved a no-cost, 20-year lease with the Federal Aviation Administration for the tower property.

The FAA is on course to issue a construction contract for the federally funded, $43 million tower project this spring.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://bit.ly/L60jFF) that construction on the new tower is expected to take about two years.

It will replace the airport tower that’s been in place since the 1950s.
