Law enforcement will be escorting the procession from Mount Pleasant to James Island. MPPD will hold six intersections between the church and Ravenel Bridge for the Charleston County Sheriffs motor escort to the burial site.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office expects Whilden Street to be closed prior to the start of the funeral service, as the street will be used for parking.

Deputies say the route from Mount Pleasant to James Island will be, Royall Avenue to Coleman Boulevard. Coleman Boulevard to the Ravenel Bridge, across the Crosstown to Lockwood Boulevard. The procession will turn left onto Lockwood and go across the James Island Connector to Harborview Road, and then straight into the cemetery.

Motorists should expect delays, as the information that we are receiving leads us to believe that this will be a large procession.  We expect traffic to be very heavy at the church, and at the cemetery, as the cemetery is not very large and parking is limited.  Parking is limited at both the church and cemetery.
