Closures will begin along Leechburg Road as the procession leaves the funeral home and heads west down Leechburg Road and onto Freeport Road to the church for the 10 a.m. funeral mass.


After the ceremony, the procession will head back the same way, past the funeral home and continuing onto Leechburg Road/Route 56 in front of Burrell High School. The procession will continue to Melwood Road and into the cemetery.

Those closures will only be in effect as the procession passes through.

There will be longer-term closures in the streets near the church, as well as temporary no-parking zones.
