It could be another year before air traffic controllers at the Roanoke Airport claim their new tower.
An airport spokeswoman says construction on the nearly 200-foot tall tower is a couple months behind schedule because of a rainy period earlier in the year.
The building is now expected to open for tours next spring and should be fully functional by fall 2004.
This is the second year of construction.
The tower will replace the fifty year old control tower currently being used by the airport and will feature the latest in aviation technology and radar equipment.
The more than 9-million dollar price tag is being picked up by the FAA.
