President Monson passed away last Tuesday at the age of 90 from causes related to age.

More than 30,000 people attended Pres. Monson’s viewing Thursday.

Those attending the funeral had to arrive early.

Doors opened at 10:30 a.m. and attendees had to be seated by 11:30 a.m.

A procession through downtown Salt Lake City will follow the funeral and the route has changed.

The cortege route to the graveside service following Pres. Monson’s funeral has changed slightly to reduce traffic between exiting crowds and the procession. Please see the new route below:

  • Exit on West Temple and travel on West Temple to South Temple
  • Turn East onto South Temple, and proceed to N Street
  • Left on N Street to the cemetery
