Filming in Hall Co., Jackson Co., postponed to Thursday

By Alyson Shields Reporter
GAINESVILLE - The filming that was expected to cause delays in both Hall County and Jackson County has been pushed back to another day.<br /> <br /> Teri Pope, spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Transportation, says a techincal issue prevented the film crews from shooting their scenes today.<br /> <br /> "[It] did not occur as planned because they had technical difficulties with their cameras," said Pope.<br /> <br /> Pope said the locations included are State Route 53 (Dawsonville Highway) over the Chattahoochee River portion of Lake Lanier in Gainesville, also over the Chestatee River portion at the Hall/Forsyth County line, and State Route 11/US 129 (Jefferson Bypass) from Galilee Church Road in Jefferson to Park Street in Arcade.<br /> <br /> On Dawsonville Highway, traffic from Lake Ranch Court to Marina Drive near the Chattahoochee River portion and traffic from Dogwood Path to Little Hall Road will be slowed.<br /> <br /> "The plan is to start at the bridges and let them get what they need and then to move to Jefferson," said Pope.<br /> <br /> The upcoming movie, "Goosebumps" stars Jack Black.
