From UM Facilities and Operations (and the City Code Red Emergency Notification System):

The funeral service for Amy Schnearle-Pennywitt, the Ann Arbor firefighter who died as a result of a line of duty accident, will be held tomorrow morning (Tuesday, Jan. 17) at Crisler Arena. Due to the very large number of fire trucks and other personnel who are anticipated to attend, the Ann Arbor Police plan to close westbound Stadium Boulevard between South Industrial and South Main Street tomorrow morning. They will keep the road open as long as possible, but drivers should anticipate an alternate route as early as 8 a.m. and until approximately 1:30 p.m. After the service is over around 12:30, a very long procession will occur from Stadium, turning north on Main Street and through the city.

U-M parking permit holders will have access to the parking lots around Crisler Arena, though access to/from the lots may be limited to Kipke Drive from the north. Funeral service patrons will be parking on Stadium Boulevard, in the golf course parking lot and the east end of SC7 by the railroad tracks.
