From the Antioch Police Department:
We are anticipating heavy traffic congestion in the Village of Antioch on Friday, April 5th.
For those who are unaware, Antioch resident Gerald Ellis of the Illinois State Police died in a vehicle crash this past Saturday.
Trooper Ellis’ funeral is scheduled for Friday, April 5th. The police procession route will travel through a portion of Antioch. The entire procession route has been listed on the Illinois State Police, Village of Antioch and Antioch Police Department Facebook pages. We expect the greatest impact on traffic to occur on RT173, both Eastbound and Westbound, between 1230pm and 230pm.
We ask for your patience during this very trying time.
