CLEVELAND – This spring, Cleveland will once again be home to super heros and film crews. But transforming Cleveland into a movie set for Marvel Studio’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier will require road closures and alternate routes for motorists and pedestrians from May 18 through June 28, 2013 (weather permitting).
City staff, including the Division of Traffic & Engineering and the Public Safety Department, has been working with the production company, traffic-engineering consultant American Roadway Logistics and GCRTA to develop a plan to accommodate the needs of the film and help keep traffic moving throughout the city.
- Cleveland Police and Traffic Controllers will staff key locations to monitor and assist with traffic flow.
- Primary among the road closures will be Cleveland’s West Shoreway, which will be closed (east and west bound) from Lake Avenue to E. 9th Street from May 29 through June 14. Edgewater Park and the marinas north of the Shoreway will be accessed via West 49th St.
- Other street closures will occur in Downtown Cleveland, primarily between May 18 and June 14. Additional closures may occur between June 14and June 28th.
- Updates will be provided on a regular basis through additional traffic advisories, press releases and social media. Follow on Twitter via #CLECaptTraffic.
