Sunday, May 5th will be the last day of operations for the control tower at Briscoe Field in Lawrenceville, Ga.
Earlier in the month, the Federal Aviation Administration announced the Gwinnett County airport tower would be one of the 149 to close starting April 7th. Last week, the FAA released a list of closure dates for the airports.
The towers at Kennesaw's McCollum Field and the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport in Albany are also set to close on May 5th. Athens-Ben Epps Airport's tower will cease operations on April 21st.
The closures are in an attempt to cut $637 million dollars from the FAA's budget.
Patch previously reported that even with the tower at Briscoe Field closing, the airport could remain open and operating.
