(Alexandria, VA) – Today’s funeral procession for Alexandria paramedic Joshua Weissman will have a major impact on travel in the area. Stretches of King Street, Braddock Road, Van Dorn Street, Seminary Road and Janney’s Lane will all be impacted as the procession gets underway later this afternoon. The entire Alexandria Fire Department will be out of service to honor Weissman, and some 200 fire trucks will take part in today’s procession. Alexandria City Schools will also dismiss early today. Virginia’s governor has ordered all state flags to fly at half-staff in honor of Weissman, who was killed last week while responding to a fire on I-395.
