The Washington State Patrol has worked with area churches and organizations to come up with a list of alternate viewing and parking locations for Thursday’s memorial service for a slain trooper.
Parking is extremely limited at the ShoWare Center in Kent, where trooper Tony Radulescu will be honored at 1 p.m. The 44-year-old father was killed last week during traffic stop on state Route 16 near Gorst early Thursday. The gunman died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound several hours later.
For members of the public attending the service, parking will be available at the Boeing Company, 20400 West Valley Highway. A shuttle will bus people to and from the ShoWare Center every 15 minutes, the State Patrol announced.
For those who cannot make it to Kent for the service, four locations will be available to watch the ceremony. The doors at the following locations will open at 12:30 p.m.:
* Chapel Hill Presbyterian Church, 7700 Skansie Ave., in Gig Harbor.
* Christian Faith Center, 33645 20th Ave. S., in Federal Way.
* Puyallup Foursquare Church, 601 Ninth Ave. S.E., in Puyallup.
* Church For All Nations, 111 112th St. E., in Tacoma.
Cards and other remembrances can be left at the sites and will be passed along to the family.
