The map shows the procession route through Orem, beginning with the 1600 North exit from Interstate 15, along 1600 North to 800 East. Barney’s funeral will be held in Orem.

A second map released Friday shows alternate routes along 2000 North, 1200 North and 800 North.

Orem Police wrote on its Facebook page Friday morning: “Here is a map of the procession route for Officer Barney on Monday. We anticipate the lead cars to be coming into Orem sometime around 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. This can change depending on how long the services last and how long the procession ends up being.

“If you would like a real time updates on the location of the procession on Monday please follow us (OremDPS) on Twitter as I will be posting updates there .

“This is going to have a large effect on Orem traffic in the north end of the city. Please be patient and plan for an alternate route. We will do our very best to make this go as smooth as possible but you can help too. The best way is to share this information with anyone that might be traveling through the city at that time and for them to plan accordingly.
