Arlington Hts. roads closed Saturday for wake
Arlington Heights police will close several roads Saturday, including a lane of Northwest Highway, to accommodate large crowds expected at a wake.
Douglas Peters, a 43-year-old Algonquin resident, was killed in a motorcycle accident last weekend. He will be remembered with a wake at Lauterburg and Oehler, 2000 E. Northwest Hwy., between 3 and 5 p.m.
Police say one westbound lane of traffic on Northwest Hightway directly in front of the funeral home will be closed.
Also, Gregory will be closed from Prindle to Northwest Highway. Forrest will be closed for parking lot access to the funeral home, according to police.
Peters was killed when his motorcycle crashed into a guardrail in Marseilles, Ilinois last Saturday evening.
He had been riding in the Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run, a ride from the Grundy County fairgrounds to the Middle East Conflicts Wall memorial in Marseilles.
Officials said they are expecting a large crowd of family, friends and other motorcycle riders at Peters' wake Saturday afternoon.
