    A film production is coming to Kirkwood November 17th-20th that will require a lane, and street closure, and overnight filming on Friday the 19th.

    The south lane of Robson PL NE will be closed the 17th-20th from 7am-7pm with the north lane remaining open to motorists and pedestrians.

    Robson CT NE will be a full street closure from 11am on Friday the 19th, until 11am on Saturday the 20th.

    APD officers will be on site directing traffic.

    I have included a TCP map of the closure, and the notification letter.

    Also, the Locations team from the production is hosting a community coffee and pastries event for any Kirkwood residents concerned and/or fatigued about filming in the neighborhood, and to simply put a face behind the production and answer any questions.

    They have rented the Kirkyard Public House patio, and will be serving coffee from Taproom, and pastries from Evergreen Butcher and Baker this Saturday, November 13th from 10am to 12pm. All Kirkwood residents are welcome!
