Po­lice: Ex­pect de­tours, road clo­sures and park­ing re­stric­tions all next week

Albany Times Union - - CAPITAL REGION - Staff re­port

A num­ber of streets and ramps around the city of Al­bany will close next week for the film­ing of a new net­work tele­vi­sion show called “Crime,” city of­fi­cials said Thurs­day.

Dis­ney’s ABC Stu­dios will be film­ing at var­i­ous sites around the city start­ing Mon­day, July 16, and last­ing through Satur­day, July 21, said Brian Shea, chief of staff for Mayor Kathy Shee­han.

The Cen­tral Av­enue Busi­ness Im­prove­ment Dis­trict posted more in­for­ma­tion about the pro­duc­tion on its Face­book page, not­ing that one of the scenes will in­clude a gun­fight ac­tion se­quence with stunts, a car chase and sim­u­lated gun­fire.

“This is not a real fight—it isa scene for a TV show,” the post reads. “Al­bany Po­lice Of­fi­cers will be su­per­vis­ing and as­sist­ing us with our work to en­sure every­one’s safety.”

The pro­duc­tion is be­ing done in co­op­er­a­tion with the Gov­er­nor’s Of­fice of Mo­tion Pic­ture and Tele­vi­sion De­vel­op­ment, the Al­bany Film Com­mis­sion and the Al­bany Po­lice Depart­ment, the post says.

Ac­cess to busi­nesses will be main­tained through a signed de­tour that will di­vert traf­fic around the clo­sures. Al­bany po­lice will have of­fi­cers sta­tioned at key lo­ca­tions to di­rect traf­fic through in­ter­sec­tions dur­ing morn­ing and evening drive times.

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice ad­vi­sory, roads clo­sures and de­tours will be in ef­fect through­out the city at var­i­ous times from 6 a.m. July 16 to 7 p.m. July 21, or un­til the film­ing is com­plete.

The Clin­ton Av­enue ramp from Wa­ter Street to Broad­way will be closed from Mon­day morn­ing to Satur­day night.

On Mon­day only, a signed de­tour will be in place di­vert­ing traf­fic that uses this ramp north on Quay Street to Wa­ter Street, then left on Wa­ter Street to Or­ange Street, right on Or­ange Street to Broad­way, and then right on Broad­way back to the in­ter­sec­tion of Broad­way and Clin­ton Av­enue.
