Traffic beside and near the Charleston Civic Center will be affected Wednesday as people gather there for State Police Trooper Eric Workman’s memorial service at 2 p.m. and later as a procession of vehicles departs for his burial in Clay County.
Beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Clendenin Street will be closed between Lee and Quarrier streets between the Civic Center and the Charleston Town Center Mall, according to a news release from the city of Charleston. Police officials say they expect traffic around the Civic Center – on Pennsylvania Avenue, Lee and Quarrier streets – to be very heavy after 1 p.m. as law enforcement officials from throughout the region join others to honor Workman.
Following the memorial service, portions of Washington, Lee and Quarrier streets and Pennsylvania Avenue will be closed temporarily while the funeral and law enforcement procession leaves the Civic Center and heads toward Clay County. Traffic on Interstate 64 eastbound and Interstate 77 northbound will also be affected as the procession moves onto the interstate and through the splits toward Interstate 79. Authorities estimate that the processional will begin sometime around 3:30 p.m. or 4 p.m.
