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 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.
