View Chief Gates Funeral: Tue. April 27th, 2010 in a larger map

As we mentioned last week, the LAPD has initiated several street closures in Downtown this morning for the procession and funeral of Chief Daryl Gates. Some will last until Noon, however some will be intermittent to accommodate the procession. Use the suggested alternates for getting around Downtown this morning. More information is available from the LADOT.

Full Closures between 6:30 AM and Noon for funeral service:
--Temple Street between Broadway and Grand Avenue
--Hill Street between Temple and Ord Streets, and all of Hill Place

Local Access Only (Court employees)
--Hill Street between 1st and Temple Streets

Intermittent Temporary Street Closures between 8:00 and 9:00 AM for the procession:
--1st Street between Main and Hill Streets
--Broadway between 2nd and Judge John Aiso Streets*

Suggested detour routes are as follows:
--To the North: Cesar Chavez
--To the East: Los Angeles Street
--To the South: 2nd Street
--To the West: Figueroa Street and Beaudry Avenue

*Broadway is parallel to Judge John Aiso, so this is a bit confusing.
