13th Street Bridge closed June 4-8 for upcoming movie

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - We want to remind all our viewers that the 13th Street Bridge will be closed for much of next week.

Starting Tuesday June 4, filmmakers will be shooting a scene on the bridge, in which a car goes sailing off into the river.

Police officers will be directing traffic until the 13th Street Bridge re-opens at noon on Saturday.

We are also told that 3rd Avenue, from 14th Street to 13th Street, will be closed Saturday June 1 to Saturday June 8.

Columbus mayor Teresa Tomlinson says the production company is covering all the city's expenses in accommodating their needs.

She also tells us this will have a positive economic impact for the Fountain City.

Police officers will be directing traffic during the four-day shutdown.

The film "Need for Speed" stars Michael Keaton and will be released next year.
