movie-sbso-02-02-16On Tuesday, February 2nd and Wednesday, February 3rd between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (weather permitting), a production studio plans to film exterior aerial and ground level scenes between the 8300 and 8500 blocks of Fairfax Dr. and at the corner of Evangeline Avenue.

As events are taking place, vehicular and pedestrian traffic will be held on the following impacted streets: Jean Lafitte Parkway, Fairfax Drive, Evangeline Avenue, Norwood Drive, Dominique Drive, Queens Court East, Evangeline Avenue, Kings Drive, Valor Drive and Patricia Drive.

In coordination with the St. Bernard Parish Sherriff’s office, on-site law enforcement will be present to help facilitate traffic flow, intermittent traffic control while filming, and to ensure public safety throughout the duration of all work. We are also working with the FAA, the St. Bernard Parish Government, the St. Bernard Parish Fire Dept. and many other entities to help lessen the impact within the St. Bernard Parish community. If you are a resident living directly within these blocks, we will work with each and every one of you to make sure you are able to come and go as needed.
