Interstate 95 northbound will be closed for two hours starting at 12:30 p.m. Monday for the funeral procession of two slain Miami-Dade police officers.

The viewing for officer Roger Castillo will be at 7 p.m. Sunday at Vista Memorial Gardens & Funeral Home in Miami Lakes.

The viewing for officer Amanda Haworth has not been set.

At 6 p.m. Friday, a caravan of officers planned to accompany the bodies to Vista from the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner's office.

Funeral services will be on Monday, but the time and venue are still being arranged.

All northbound lanes, including the Sunpass express lanes, will be closed from Interstate 395 to Northwest 119th Street, said Rory Santana, a senior Florida Department of Transportation official in Miami.

The information will be flashed on electronic signs along I-95 starting Friday evening, Santana said.

Traffic will be detoured.
