The dismantling of a tower crane in Kelowna will temporarily disrupt traffic along a downtown street for three days.

The crane was used to help build a 20-storey condominium tower at the corner of Ellis Street and Lawrence Avenue.

Construction on the tower began in early 2018 and is expected to be complete next year.
