City urges patience during Cleveland filming


CLEVELAND  — City officials in Cleveland are asking residents for patience while the filming of a big-budget movie ties up traffic near downtown for the next several weeks.

The production of Captain America: The Winter Soldier will close portions of city streets through much of June. City officials are urging residents to be aware of the closures and have patience with Cleveland’s latest star turn.

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Ciaccia tells The Plain Dealer that the road closures are a fluid situation, so her advice is to “be patient and leave early.”

Perhaps the most notable closure is that of the West Shoreway from Lake Avenue to East Ninth Street, from May 30 to June 15.

The city has a web site — www.clevelandmovietraffic.com — that will provide updates on road closings.
