TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A fixture on the Topeka skyline for more than three years is coming down as renovation of the Kansas Statehouse nears completion.

The towering blue crane was used to carry building materials to the capitol roof and dome, including massive steel beams used to support scaffolding.

Statehouse architect Barry Greis said Thursday the crane has picked up its last loads. JE Dunn Construction planned to start dismantling it Friday or Saturday.

The $330 million renovation project began in 2001. State officials are planning a ceremony marking its completion to coincide with the Jan. 29 anniversary of Kansas statehood.
