Traffic & Parking Advisory for this Friday

If you're planning a visit to the library this Friday, March 23rd, please bear in mind that the funeral for Congresswoman Louise Slaughter will occur in the Eastman Theatre Friday morning at 11. According to some reports, there will be a very large Congressional delegation attending, as well as numerous other dignitaries, and a large public presence is also expected. The Eastman School of Music anticipates a completely full Kodak Hall, and will be simulcasting the funeral in Kilbourn Hall and the Hatch Recital Hall.

According to the Eastman School, due to security concerns, the streets around Eastman Theatre will be closed (Gibbs, Main, Swan, East), and considerable traffic is anticipated. Swan and Gibbs Streets will be closing late Thursday, and East Main Street between Chestnut Street and Scio Street will be closing by 7 am Friday morning. Attendees of the funeral are being directed to both the Gibbs Street Lot and the East End Garage.
