WIZER BLOCK CRANE COMING DOWN: One of the two construction cranes at the downtown Wizer Block project is scheduled to be dismantled next week. The crane at the corner of A Avenue and First Street will be removed in a multi-day process starting Monday. Both lanes of First Street will be closed May 22-24, but the south end of the street will remain open to provide access to the Lake View Village parking garage via Evergreen Road. Flaggers will be present during the day to direct traffic, and the street will remain closed overnight. The work is expected to be completed by the end of day Wednesday, unless high winds or other inclement weather slow the process, although officials said any extension of the street closure will not last beyond Friday.
