Timeline For Honoring Janklow On Tuesday

pierre, sd


People in Pierre will honor former Governor Bill Janklow on Tuesday.

His body will lie in state from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the South Dakota Capitol. People who wish to pay their respects will enter the Capitol from the north doors. Those doors will be closed at 10:30 a.m. to ensure everyone inside has a chance to view the flag-draped casket.

A memorial ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday. That is expected to last about 45 minutes.  You can watch the memorial service live on KELO-TV and KELOLAND.com. 

Following that ceremony, an honor guard will carry the casket down the front steps of the Capitol. As that happens, there will be a flyover by F-16 jets, a 21-gun salute and taps.

The casket will be escorted from Pierre to Sioux Falls by the South Dakota Highway Patrol.

The state has provided a list of approximate times that the procession will pass certain points on Tuesday. People who would like to view the procession can not park on the shoulder of Interstate 90 or on I-90 overpasses. Instead, you are asked to park off the interstate on the shoulder of entrance and exit ramps or on side roads.
