CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is informing motorists of heavy traffic and delays on Wednesday in conjunction with the funeral and procession for Bishop Jude Speyrer, the founding bishop of the Diocese of Lake Charles.

Authorities said beginning at 8 a.m., motorists should expect heavier than normal traffic near the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception at 935 Bilbo Street in Lake Charles, with the possibility of Bilbo Street being closed down completely from Kirby to Broad Streets.

Authorities said following a full mass at 11 a.m., the procession will travel east on Broad Street to U.S. 171. It will then proceed north on U.S. 171 and travel west on Sam Houston Jones Parkway (Highway 378) and end at the St. Charles Retreat Center located at 2151 Sam Houston Jones Parkway in Moss Bluff. 

Eastbound traffic will be partially shut down between Sam Houston Jones Parkway Spur and the St. Charles Retreat Center during the procession, authorities said.
