The street closures will be in effect from Friday, June 5 at 6:00 a.m. through Saturday, June 6 at 2:00 p.m.

St. Francis Hospital will offer FREE PARKING in their garage for area residents affected by the “No Parking” restrictions, which is located at W. 7th Street and N. DuPont Street. The free parking will become available on Saturday, June 6.

The following streets will be CLOSED TO VEHICULAR TRAFFIC:

Citizens should also be advised that throughout the duration of the funeral services, there will be additional temporary street closures due to the movement of the motorcade.
