Barbara Bush burial plans in College Station

posted by KC Wheeler -

The Former First Lady, Barbara Bush will be laid to rest tomorrow near the George Bush Library here in College Station.  

The Funeral itself will be a private affair and will take place in Houston. 

After the funeral, they will proceed to the George Bush Library in College Station. 

 If you would like to pay tribute to Barbara Bush, you can line up along the route of her motorcade. If you're interested in parking in parking lots and standing on sidewalks as the motorcade proceeds along the route, they suggest you get in place by 2pm.

The motorcade will travel northbound on Texas Avenue from Highway 6 to George Bush Drive, then travel westbound on George Bush Drive to Barbara Bush Drive.

There will be about 50 emergency vehicles involved, with officers controlling traffic at intersections along the route to allow passage.

 Traffic on Texas Avenue and George Bush Drive, as well as parking lots and cross streets along the route, will be impacted as officers block major intersections. If you're traveling, I would suggest you avoid that area, as they expect the delays to last for 2 hours.

 The George Bush Library complex will not be open to the public.

Unfortunately the forecast right shows that there's a good chance of rain during that time.  

If you'd like to watch things from home, our friends at KBTX will be airing a special starting at 2:45pm

I lieu of flowers, they are asking people to donate to the Barbara Bush Memorial Fund. HEAD HERE for more info.


K.C.-ya!
