Officers from the Fairfax County Police Department, assisted by officers from the City of Alexandria, Arlington County, the City of Fairfax, Prince William County and from the Virginia State Police, will honorably escort Investigator Carlos Silva and his family to Dulles International airport for his final flight home to Brazil. The escort will depart from Metropolitan Funeral Service at 5517 Vine Street in Alexandria on Wednesday, July 8 at approximately 10 a.m. The escort will travel on South Van Dorn Street to I95 South, to the I495 Hot Lanes North, to Rt. 267, the Dulles Access Road West, to the airport. An Honor Guard contingent will be awaiting Investigator Silva’s arrival. The community is welcome to join public safety personnel along the escort route in order to express their support for Investigator Silva and the other injured athletes still recovering from the tragic cycling crash of Thursday, July 2.

We ask the motoring public for their patience and understanding as the escort may cause brief traffic disruptions along the way.
