Downtown L.A. Streets to Close for Roybal Mass

October 31, 2005

Hundreds are expected to attend services this morning for former Rep. Edward R. Roybal, a pioneering Latino officeholder and one of Los Angeles' most enduring political figures.

A funeral Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles will begin with a walking procession from the Great Bronze Doors into the cathedral at 8:45 a.m.

From 8 a.m. to noon the following streets near the cathedral, at 555 W. Temple St., will be closed: Hill Street between Ord and 1st streets; Temple between Grand Avenue and Spring Street; and the southbound 110 Freeway offramp at Hill Street. Spring and Broadway between Temple and 1st will be closed from 11 a.m., or when the service ends, while a procession leaves the cathedral.

The service is open to the public, as is the burial, which follows at Calvary Cemetery in East Los Angeles.
