SELMA, AL (WSFA) - The historic Edmund Pettus Bridge on U.S. Highway 80 in Selma will be closed during filming of a movie, says the Alabama Department of Transportation.
The bridge will not be open to traffic between 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday, June 23 through Thursday, June 26.
The closure is being made so filmmakers can have access to the site for the making of the movie 'Selma'.
Traffic will have to use the U.S. Highway 80 Truck Route (Selma Bypass) and the ADPS will have law enforcement in the area to help with traffic control.
Motorists are requested to consider using alternate routes, adjust arrival/departure times, observe posted speed limits, and drive with extreme caution in this area.
