Street to close for crane
NORMAN — Peters Avenue, north of Main for about half a block, will be closed until 5 p.m. Tuesday so a crane can be set up to repair the roof on the Financial Building, 111 N Peters Ave. A portion of the roof was damaged by the April 13 tornado.
Sidewalks will be closed in the same area. In about two weeks, the same portion of the street and sidewalk will be closed again for the dismantling of the crane. Traffic control signs will be posted.
