Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

This spring, Cleveland will once again transform into a movie set for Marvel Studio's Captain America: The Winter Soldier which will require road closures and alternate routes for motorists and pedestrians from May 18th through June 28th.

"Wow.  That is horrible," said Judy Jackson Winston of Lyndhurst.

Among the road closures for the ‘Captain America' filming will be Cleveland's West Shoreway, which will be closed both east and west bound from Lake Avenue to E. 9th Street from May 29 through June 14.

Edgewater Park and the marinas north of the Shoreway will be accessed via West 49th St.

City staff, including the Division of Traffic & Engineering and the Public Safety Department, has been working with the production company, traffic-engineering consultant American Roadway Logistics and GCRTA to develop a plan to accommodate the needs of the film and help keep traffic moving throughout the city.

Additional closures may occur between June 14 and June 28th.

Updates will be provided on a regular basis through additional traffic advisories, press releases and social media. Follow on Twitter via #CLECaptTraffic.
