ROMNEY VIEWING, FUNERAL TO AFFECT TRAFFIC

Jan. 8, 2004 – Traffic restrictions will be implemented in downtown Christiansted on Friday morning for the viewing of retired Maj. Gen. Jean Romney at Government House and his funeral to follow at Holy Cross Catholic Church.
The viewing is from 8 to 10 a.m. The service for the retired adjutant general of the V.I. National Guard is to begin at 11 a.m., with burial to follow in Kingshill Cemetery.
According to a release from the Police Department, the funeral procession will leave Government House at approximately 10:30 a.m. to proceed on King Street to Prince Street and up to the church. It is anticipated that the procession may take 20 minutes or more.
The following traffic restrictions will be in effect until the funeral is over, police announced:
No parking will be permitted from 7 to 11 a.m. on King Street next to Government House or on Company Street from the post office to Prince Street next to the church.
Northeast-bound traffic on King Street will be diverted at the Market Street intersection southward to Hill Street.
Southeast-bound traffic on King Cross Street will be held at the intersection of King Street while the procession passes by. Because of the anticipated length of time of the procession, police advised that drivers traveling from the western part of town "try to use an alternative route … to proceed east."
