      Highways 1 and 6 to be Closed for Sharon Motorcade

      Starting around 11:00 a.m. Monday, westbound portions of the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv Highway between Jerusalem and Latrun will be closed to the public periodically to allow the motorcade accompanying the casket of former prime minister Ariel Sharon to pass.

      The same will hold true for southbound portions of the Trans Israel Toll Road and roads leading to Sharon's Shikmim (Sycamore) Farm, where he will be laid to rest.
