Crane retrieves documents from flood-damaged Veterans Memorial Building

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Crews in Cedar Rapids Wednesday will be retrieving documents from the flood-damaged Veterans Memorial Building.

City officials need financial documents from the upper floors of the Veterans Memorial Building to be used in the city's annual audit.  Since there's no power to the elevators, a crane will be used to get up to those floors.  It's the same method used in July to remove documents from City Hall.

Two lanes of the First Avenue bridge will be closed most of the day Wednesday to make room for the crane.
