BEVERLY — The state’s congressional delegation is once again urging the federal government not to close air traffic control towers at six airports in the state, including Beverly Municipal Airport.

In a Nov. 22 letter to the head of the Federal Aviation Administration, Sens. Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren, as well as the state’s eight House congressional members, said they are concerned that the FAA is again considering closing the towers due to budget cuts.
