Fallen officer’s funeral procession to impact traffic


CARMEL, IN – Carmel motorists are advised that the funeral procession for Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Jacob Pickett will impact traffic on Michigan Road from 116th Street to 96th Street on Friday, March 9, between the hours of 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. The procession will come out of Zionsville and turn south on Michigan Road on its way to Crown Hill Cemetery. During the procession, southbound traffic will be stopped north of 116th Street, but northbound and cross-traffic will also be impacted.


Northbound traffic will not be able to turn left to the west) during the procession. Officers will have intersections blocked. This will also impact traffic on east-west streets at 116th Street, 106th Street, 96th Street and various minor streets that serve the businesses in this area. The two-hour window is broad because it is not known exactly when the procession will come through, nor is it certain how long the procession will last. Motorists who are concerned about this should consider an alternative route.

Due to expected large crowds, those who want to pay their respects are encouraged to arrive early and find a safe place to park before lining the west side of the road.
