25th Street Theater sign to be removed


The historic 25th Street Theater sign is seeing it’s final days in Waco.

The city says after the recent heavy rains and winds in the area, the structural integrity of the sign has deteriorated to a level creating potential safety concerns.

An inspection company says given the age, size and location of the sign over a sidewalk and traffic intersection, it must be taken down immediately.

25th Street and Grim Avenue will be closed on Thursday while cranes remove the sign and take it to storage.
