Public Access

The state funeral for President Ronald Reagan will be highly visible, primarily through journalists and cameramen who will be the public's eyes and ears, but the opportunities for actual public access are limited.

The primary opportunities occur during the lying in state at the Capitol and the funeral procession to the Capitol east on Constitution Avenue from 16 th street, south from the Executive Mansion that Reagan occupied for two terms, from 1981 to 1989, as the country's 40 th president.

The president's remains will be carried along the procession route on horse-drawn caisson, with ceremonial troops from all branches of the armed forces as escorts. The remains will be transferred to a hearse and taken to Washington National Cathedral for the funeral service.

No tickets are available for the public at the Cathedral.

The public will not be able to view the arrival and departure ceremonies at Andrews Air Force Base.

Motorcade routes are being published.
