If you're flying in or out of Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport on Monday, you may experience some delays.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the air traffic control tower at MKE was experiencing power and communication issues. The issues started Monday morning and continued into the early afternoon hours.

A spokesperson with the FAA said the Chicago En Route Radar Center assumed the airspace and is only allowing a limited number of flights to land and take off.

The FAA said technicians were working to solve the issues, but there is no set time frame on when the issues will be resolved.
