On Saturday, Jan. 9, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Wake Forest Police will close the portion of North White Street from East Spring Street to East Juniper Avenue to assist a funeral procession that will end at the Wake Forest Cemetery, 400 N. White St. The procession is for a Raleigh firefighter who died earlier this week.
Lt. Herman Greg Ellis was killed in a multi-vehicle crash on Sunday afternoon along I-540 in north Raleigh.
Ellis had served with the Raleigh Fire Department since September 2008.
Police officers will be in place to safely direct traffic around the road closure. Delays are expected, so motorists are urged to avoid the area if possible and take an alternate route.
