Crane to disrupt downtown traffic on Wednesday


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- An annual audit will affect downtown driving this week.

The City of Cedar Rapids will be retrieving documents from the Veterans Memorial Building on Wednesday. The City has hired a moving company and a crane operator to remove financial documents from the second, third and fourth floors of the building.

The crane will be on the First Avenue Bridge. Two lanes of the First Avenue Bridge will be closed for most of the day on Wednesday.

The documents will be used for the City's annual audit. The City is using this unusual moving method because the Veterans Memorial Building does not have electricity or a working elevator and because of the large amount of financial documents needed.
