OAKLAND, CA - AUGUST 03: Trucks drive down a road near a half-completed 236-foot FAA control tower at Oakland International Airport on August 3, 2011 in Oakland, California. U.S. President Barack Obama is urging members of Congress to pass legislation to end the FAA shutdown by the end of the week. The shutdown has left an estimated 4,000 FAA employees furloughed and nearly 30,000 construction workers out of a job as airport construction projects are stalled.
