Atlanta filming projects to impact traffic

A number of filming projects will impact traffic in coming weeks.

Signs like this indicate filming projects.

"Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" is going to be filming for quite some time at the Georgia Dome. It's possible downtown traffic around that area will be impacted, so take care while traveling.

In DeKalb County, Old Briarcliff Road between Briarcliff Road and Clifton Road will be closed to through traffic from 7 a.m. on Wednesday, April 29 through 6 p.m. on Friday, May 8, for a Paramount production. I'm not sure which one but I'll see if I can find out.

Road closure signs will be posted in the area, advising motorists of construction work and traffic restrictions.
