The Town of Mooresville lost a Police Officer last Saturday as many of you know. Our town has stepped up to support daily operations with police staffing, fire staffing, and support of their staff, elected officials and citizens following this tragedy. Tomorrow the services for Mooresville Police Officer Jordan Sheldon will be held in Charlotte with a procession of public safety first responders traveling from Calvary Church in Charlotte through downtown Mooresville and ending at the Mooresville Police Department. The procession route on 485 and I-77 NB will effect travel on both roadways between the hours of 1p and 5p.
The procession will pass through Davidson on I-77 where the Griffith Street overpass bridge will be closed for the display of the American flag over the NB lanes of I-77 by Davidson Fire Ladder #1 Truck. Davidson Police will close the Griffith Street overpass bridge at 1p to stage fire apparatus and police vehicles on the bridge. Citizens are asked to plan ahead for this closure and adjust travel to alternate routes during the bridge closure from 1p until approximately 5p depending on procession length and time.
We also encourage Davidson citizens to show their support for the family and friends of Officer Sheldon; and to honor his service by standing by as the procession passes in downtown Mooresville; or at the Griffith Street overpass ramps. The closure of the Griffith Street overpass bridge in Davidson will allow for pedestrians to stand nearby as the procession passes.
