The route will be;
South on Front Street to Linden Avenue
East on Linden Avenue passing the E.D.U. Office (136 Linden)
Continuing on Linden Avenue to Danny Thomas Blvd
North on Danny Thomas Blvd. to Union Avenue
West on Union Avenue passing in front of the Double Tree Hotel (185 Union) to Third Street
North on Third Street to Poplar Avenue
West on Poplar to Front Street
North on Front back to the Pyramid
Given the long distance (about 2.5 hours) between the location of the funeral service and the gravesite, do you know if they plan to run the full police processional the whole way? Obviously Officer Warren will be escorted the entire route, but I'm trying to figure out whether or not to plan on making that leg of the trip as well.
