HOUSTON – Wednesday’s memorial service for four fallen firefighters will affect traffic around Reliant Stadium.

Around 6 a.m., a large number of fire department vehicles traveled in multiple processions with police escorts on various Houston freeways, including I-10 East and West, US 290, US 59 North and I-45 South. They then lined up outside the stadium.

The Firefighters Memorial Procession along Kirby Drive will begin at 8 a.m. Kirby will be closed in both directions between La Concha and the 610 South Loop from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

The public can view the procession from the south parking lot of Reliant Stadium or the skywalk across Kirby Drive.

Three lots west of Kirby Drive will offer free parking. Access these lots via S. Main.

Traffic is expected to be heavy around Reliant Stadium before, during, and after the memorial service. Again, Kirby Drive will be closed from south of O.S.T. to the 610 Loop until the memorial service is over.
