WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) — The Citizens Bank sign in Wilkes-Barre is close to being removed in its entirety.
Removal of the sign began on October 21, after nearly two decades of lighting up the Wilkes-Barre skyline.
South Franklin Street changed from a one-way to a two-way street as cranes reached to the top of the 14 story building Wednesday.
The work is expected to last until 4 p.m. There will be access to the Citizens Bank building and other South Franklin Street businesses. Drivers can expect delays and are asked to avoid the area if possible.
