Motorcade Route from Plains to Atlanta on Monday

The route details are online through the Carter Center and news releases. The route may come through an area you live close to. If the route comes through your town, your local law enforcement office would know the road best for viewing the funeral motorcade. You may want to ask them an appropriate location to view the motorcade and estimated time.
