Funeral Procession for Wyandotte County Deputies

Thursday, June 21, 2018, a joint funeral service for Wyandotte County Deputy Sheriffs King and Rohrer will be held at approximately 9:00 am at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas.  

Kansas City, Kansas Police Department will be overseeing the procession through city streets, until it reaches I-35 and 7th Street. Once the procession arrives at I-35, KHP will be overseeing the procession, until it exits the interstate. There will be a rolling roadblock southbound on I-35. Motorists should expect entrance ramps to southbound I-35 to be blocked. Traffic needs to be prepared for reduced speeds, and no traffic will be allowed to pass the procession.
  
Prior to the funeral, and during the procession, motorists should prepare for delays, or take alternate routes in the Kansas City, Kansas, and northern Johnson County area.
