Motorists Encouraged To Respect Procession

Saturday Army Cpl. Wade Oglesby will be laid to rest, and motorists are urged to use caution as his procession travels to the cemetery.

On Saturday from 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. police will escort the funeral procession for the fallen solider down North Avenue from Martin Mortuary at Fourth Street to Grand Junction Memorial Gardens.

Both westbound lanes and one eastbound lane of North Avenue will remain open but drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes. Also, north and south bound roads will be blocked by officers as the procession passes.

People who plan to line North as Oglesby goes by are asked to obey pedestrian safety rules.
