A funeral procession is planned for the late Ralph Klein, as Albertans get ready to pay their respects to the former premier on Friday.

Rolling road closures will be in effect as the motorcade makes its way to the McDougall Centre, then to Municipal Plaza and onto the Epcor Centre, the City of Calgary announced.

Rolling closures will affect 5 Avenue throughout the morning, while Macleod Trail will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. between 6 and 9 Avenue, the city said.

This event will be hosted by the City of Calgary at the request of the Klein family and will be open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
