Drivers on the east side of Fort Wayne will need to give themselves some extra time on the road on Friday.

Today, the Fort Wayne Police Department announced funeral services and the procession route for Detective Donald Kidd, who passed away unexpectedly last week..

Services will begin at 11:00 a.m. Friday at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 7710 E. State Blvd, before a procession to Concordia Cemetery Gardens on Lake Avenue.

The procession route will leave from the church and head east on Maysville Road before turning south on Landin Road. From here, it will turn west on North River Road before turning onto Lake Avenue and arriving at the cemetery.

If you are driving on or near any of those roads late Friday morning or early Friday afternoon, please, be cautious and aware of slowed or stopped traffic.
