CLEVELAND– Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald will discuss a plan on Wednesday to avert the closure of the air traffic control tower at the Cuyahoga County airport.

A press conference is scheduled for Wednesday at 11 a.m. to discuss how to keep it open.

Last week, the Federal Aviation Administration said it’s closing air traffic control towers at 149 small-volume airports nationwide.

That included the tower at Cuyahoga County Airport in Richmond Heights.
