Spectators watch as a worker on North River Street sprays water on demolition debris to control dust at the site of the Hotel Sterling on Monday afternoon. As Brdaric Excavating Co. of Luzerne continued its work to remove the structure, North River Street from West Market Street to West Jackson Street was completely closed to traffic Monday, as was the westbound lane of West Market Street from North Franklin Street to North River Street. Those streets as well as the northbound lane of South River Street between Northampton and Market streets will be closed today. As work wound down Monday, only about a quarter of the hotel — on the northeast corner of Market and River streets — remained erect.
