Traffic Advisory for Police Funeral Procession

Friday's escort for Officer Sean Callahan will wind from Johnson Ferry Road in East Cobb to Winkenhofer Pine Ridge Memorial Park in Kennesaw.

Cobb County Government has issued a traffic advisory related to the funeral and burial for slain Clayton County Police Officer Sean Callahan on Friday.

The funeral begins at 11 a.m. Friday at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, 955 Johnson Ferry Road in East Cobb.

The escort is expected to leave the church around noon. Vehicles will drive along Woodlawn Road north to Johnson Ferry Road, continuing north on Johnson Ferry, then turning on Shallowford Road westbound.

From Shallowford, the motorcade will turn left (westbound) onto Blackwell Road. Blackwell becomes Chastain Road, which becomes McCollum Parkway. The procession will continue to Cobb Parkway northbound and into Winkenhofer Pine Ridge Memorial Park, located at 2950 Cobb Parkway North in Kennesaw.

Callahan, who was 24 and a rookie officer on the Clayton force, died Tuesday after being shot while answering a domestic dispute at a motel. He was a 2006 Lassiter High School graduate and his family resides in Kennesaw.

Traffic Control was totally botched If you were one of the several thousands of people who were traveling around Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw in the early afternoon of 12/21 you saw a great example of extremely poor planning on traffic control for the officers funeral. It would take far to long to go into detail but whoever was responsible for planning how this was done should go back and redo their POST classes dealing with traffic control as it was totally botched. You would have to have been there, as I was, to really understand how there were so many needless delays etc.
