The Thin Blue Line comes to Dunwoody to honor one of their own.


The funeral for Chattahoochee Hills Officer Lt. Mike Vogt will be held this Saturday, February 20, 2010 beginning at Noon at the First Baptist Church of Atlanta, 4400 N. Peachtree Rd. Dunwoody, Ga. 30338.

Officers from surrounding jurisdictions will be attending the funeral to honor their fallen comrade and as many as 1,000 cars are expected along the route to Arlington Memorial Park, 201 Mt. Vernon Highway NW in Sandy Springs thus forming the thin blue line.

I am expecting the intersections of I-285 / Shallowford Road and I-285 / Chamblee Dunwoody Road to be closed except to the funeral procession after the service. In honor Lt. Mike Vogt, I asking motorists and the traveling public to be vigilant and patient in this area on Saturday as there will be numerous officers on foot and in patrol cars.

John

Can you get the route they will be taking to the cemetery?

Will they be going on the highway from the church or through Dunwoody? If through Dunwoody, I know that many would like to pay their respects.

thanks!

This may help too:

The route of the funeral procession for Lt. Mike Vogt will enter the south end of DeKalb County on I-285 near Moreland Ave. at approximately 1000 hours.
