WASHINGTON (AP) Some streets in northwest Washington will be closed Friday morning for the funeral of Washington Wizards owner Abe Pollin.
The funeral services are scheduled for 11:30 a.m. at Washington Hebrew Congregation. Pollin died Tuesday. He was 85.
D.C. police say Macomb Street will be closed near the synagogue between Massachusetts and Idaho avenues. Also, 39th Street will be closed between Massachusetts Avenue and Newark Street.
A public memorial service will be held Dec. 8 at Verizon Center. Pollin built the arena, spurring development in a blighted section of downtown Washington.
