    Please do not close Morris Avenue on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. My colleague and I are conducting a tour of Birmingham aboard two different Bilbrey Tours motorcoaches. We are taking the group to The Original Peanut Place in the morning after Mr. Cassimus opens at 9:30. I will check the schedule to see which other streets will be closed. I am glad for the film to be made in Birmingham and the daily road closings will be an asset.

      Hey Linda,
      Our office isn’t in charge of the street closures for the film. We are just posting them for the community. I don’t have their confirmed details for Wednesday, but I don’t think Morris is in their plans for the 16th.

      • Linda Fryer says:

        Thanks, Jessica Moody for responding. Isn’t it great that yet another movie is being made in The Magic City! Hurrah! Thankfully, our two motorcoaches totally around 80 people will get to enjoy the delicious peanuts at the Original Peanut Place!

    • Nancy Haddox, Bilbrey Tours says:

      Linda, I’m just seeing this post, but thanks for being so conscientious in regards to conducting the city tour for our group when we were in Birmingham. Connie said you did a fantastic job as the step-on guide!!

  2. I see you guys have everything in order. Keep up the good work.

    Can anyone come and watch the filming of Live. I would love to come and watch how making a film is done. I think it would be very interesting and fun to watch.

    • Jessica Moody says:

      Hey Liz, While you can watch from the street in several areas, the set is a closed set so you won’t be able to get very close.

    Our office is located off of 20th Street N and we utilize the parking decks on 4th Ave. How is this going to affect getting into the parking decks if Richard Arrington is closed? If there is any additional information on specifics of the closures I would appreciate being able to let my employees know.

    • Jessica Moody says:

      On Wednesday, May 23rd, 4th Ave is not impacted in any way. The entire street is not closed. It is only portions of the street. It is only 1st Ave North that is closed and it is only closed from 20-21st St. and 22nd-24th St. The only other street closed is 22nd St from 1st to 2nd Ave. Continue to refer your employees to this post. It is updated daily.

      • Lori says:

        We also use that parking deck. How will it affect getting in or out on Thursday ?

        • Jessica Moody says:

          There are intermittent closures on 21st and 4th. It’s not a complete closure. They will be letting traffic through in between takes. Based on the time, it should only be an issue between 10:30 and 3:30.

      • S. Davis says:

        Thank you I appreciate the response!

    It would be incredibly helpful to have an actual map that shows these closures. Is there anywhere that may have that posted? Thank you for providing this much info though.

    Are their any road closures for the remainder of the week?
