Procession through Lexington will pay tribute to fallen officer

Once funeral services send for Officer Bryan Durman Tuesday afternoon, his body will be transported from Southland Christian Church to the nearby Bluegrass Memorial Gardens.

A direct path will not be taken. Instead, the procession will travel 25 miles through Lexington.

The general public has been invited to gather outside the old Lexington Mall, which is along the route, to pay tribute.

The procession will include a motorcade of more than one hundred police cruisers and fire trucks.

Durman's cruiser will lead the hearse.

More than 100 intersections will be closed along the 25 mile long procession.

The route begins at Southland Christian Church, off Harrodsburg Road, immediately after the funeral. The funeral began around noon Tuesday, and is expected to last three hours.

The processional will then turn right on Man o'War toward Richmond Road, then will travel on Richmond Road to Downtown Lexington.

Richmond Road becomes Main Street, where the procession will pass the Lexington Police Department.

In the final stretch, the procession will go left on South Broadway, before rejoining Harrodsburg Road, and arriving at Bluegrass Memorial Gardens.

Fayette County Schools officials will be monitoring the procession to see if any changes to bus routes need to be made.

The procession is expected to last about an hour. It will stretch around three to four miles long.
