The public is being asked to exercise caution along the funeral procession route for Blair County Prison Corrections Officer Rhonda J. Russell.

After the 11 a.m. service at the Blair County Convention Center, the procession will organize and depart via Convention Center Boulevard to Plank Road.

It will proceed past several shopping locations, including Walmart, Target, Logan Valley Mall, Weis, Hobby Lobby, Martin’s and through several intersections as it heads toward 17th Street where it will access the Interstate 99 North exit 41 toward Bellwood to Blair Memorial Park.

Traffic updates will be provided through a text alert system that can be accessed by sending the text RUSSELL to 67283. Participants will receive a confirmation message upon enrolling. Enrollment will terminate on Tuesday, Nov. 30, with no action required by those who enroll.

Alternative options for viewing Monday’s service are available at the following websites: WJACTV.com, WeAreCentralPA.com and LightnerCommunications.com.
