WESTFIELD, NJ — East Broad Street from Wychwood Road to Springfield Avenue and Gallows Hill Road from East Broad Street to the Cranford border closed at about 10 a.m. Monday for the private burial of Bobbi Kristina Brown at Fairview Cemetery. The procession is expected to arrive at 1 p.m. Westfield Police Chief David Wayman said Friday that he anticipated that the roads would reopen by rush hour.
Brown, the 22-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, is being laid to rest with her mother and grandfather. Her funeral was held in Georgia on Saturday.
No parking is allowed on these portions of the roads from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Police are allowing residents to access their homes and doing their very best to minimize any inconvenience these road closures may cause, Wayman said. He thanked the public in advance for their cooperation.
