I-110 ramps to be closed for movie filming

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Several ramps on I-10 and I-110 will be closed Friday night and early Saturday morning for the filming of "Battle: Los Angeles."

Starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, the production will be shooting scenes beneath I-110 between Laurel and North Streets for 12 hours, necessitating the closure of two nearby I-100 ramps.

In addition, the Main Street entrance ramp onto northbound I-110 will be closed from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday, as well as the portion of Main Street between 9th and 10th Streets.

The I-110 northbound exit ramp onto North Street will be closed from 8 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday, and the southbound I-110 exit ramp onto Laurel Street will be subject to intermittent closures by police during those same hours.

North Street between 9th and 10th Streets will be closed from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 p.m. Saturday, as will 10th Street between Florida Blvd. and North Street.

Nearby streets may be subject to police-controlled, short-term intermittent closures.

The production involves numerous special effects, so residents and passing drivers should not be alarmed to see smoke and pyrotechnics at times.

For additional information, contact the city-parish Department of Public Works Traffic Engineering Division at 389-3246.
