Movie filming means traffic delays in Gainesville, Jefferson on Wed.

By B.J. Williams News Director
GAINESVILLE - Once again, filmmakers are working in north Georgia, and that will mean some traffic delays in Wednesday on two busy roadways in the Gainesville and Jefferson areas.<br /> <br /> Teri Pope with the Georgia Department of Transportation said crews will film on State Route 53/Dawsonville Highway over the Chattahoochee River portion of Lake Lanier in Gainesville and also on SR 53/Dawsonville Highway over the Chestatee River portion of Lake Lanier at the Hall-Forsyth County line.<br /> <br /> Traffic will be slowed from Lake Ranch Court to Marina Drive near the Jerry Jackson Bridge and from Dogwood Path to Little Hall Road near Boling Bridge.<br /> <br /> "Filming will take place at both of those bridges. They're actually...using a helicopter," said Pope.<br /> <br /> After filming wraps up at the bridges, movie crews will make their way to Jefferson where traffic will be affected on SR 11/US 129/Jefferson Bypass from Galilee Church Road in Jefferson to Park Street in Arcade.<br /> <br /> Pope said filming is slated to begin at 10 a.m. and end no later than 3 p.m. Traffic will not be completely stopped during those hours, but it will be delayed.<br /> <br /> Pope said the work will require intermittent traffic stops of between five and eight minutes.<br /> <br /> In addition to film crews, law enforcement will be at each site to deter curiosity seekers from trying to watch the filming.<br /> <br /> Pope said she could not reveal the name of the film.
