Filming on Whitehall 6/28 – 6/30

Here’s another film shoot happening this week, occurring at the intersection of Whitehall, Metropolitan, and Wells. This will include overnight filming .

20th Century Fox will be filming at Pirkle Salvage Yard on Wells St and on Northside Dr. Our work is scheduled to take place on June 29th 7p-7a. We will set up on June 28th between 7a-7p and take down on June 30th between 7a-7p.

Our Special FX department will be using Squibs to simulate bullets hitting cars and actors, you may also hear simulated gunfire during our filming. We will be doing Stunt Driving work on Northside Dr.

We’ve requested the following closures from the City:

  • North Travel Lane Glenn St SW b/t Metropolitan Pkwy SW & Humphries St SW on 6/29 7a-7p
  • FULL STREET CLOSURE Glenn St SW b/t Metropolitan Pkwy Sw & Humphries St SW on 6/29 7p – 6/30 6a.
  • South Parking Lane of Wells St SW b/t Metropolitan Pkwy & Humphries St SW on 6/28-6/30 12a- 1159p
  • North lane Whitehall St SW b/t Tift St SW & Northside Dr SW on 6/28-6/30 7a-8p.
  • FULL STREET CLOSURE Whitehall St SW b/t Tift St SW & Northside Dr SW on 6/29 8p-6a
  • ITC (Intermittent Traffic Control) on Northside Dr SW b/t Wells St Sw & Whitehall St SW on 6/29 11p-6a

20th Century Fox is very sensitive to the impact that filming can have on a community. Off-duty City of Atlanta PD officers will be on site during this time to ensure the successful flow of traffic through the area. It is with these issues in mind that we approach the logistical needs of the production so we can effectively work to
minimize any inconveniences to those in the neighborhood.

On behalf of 20th Century Fox and Stuber Cast and Crew, thank you for your patience and cooperation; it is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions you can reach us at the production office 770-824-4567.

Film Shoot at Collier Metals on Tuesday (6/26)

Next Tuesday (6/26) there will be a film shoot off Windsor at Collier Metals (the railroad boundary between Mechanicsville and Pittsburgh on the south side of the neighborhood). They’ll be blocking off the run of Windsor between Bass and Doane. I’m not sure on the time of day, but they’ve been approved from 5am through 11:30pm. Somewhat related, but Mechanicsville Civic Association and NPU-V are working on a plan of action so that there’s more structure (and neighborhood benefit!) when these things come through in the future. More to follow there, but you can find more about this shoot below.

Whitehall Street Repaving (w/ added Bike Lanes)


Department of Public Works will be adding bicycle lanes along Whitehall Street on the north side of the neighborhood, going from Peachtree/Memorial/Cooper downtown (close to the jail) to where the street turns south and intersects with Ralph David Abernathy.

You can fine the proposed repaving plan here:

“The Department of Public Works is designing the Whitehall Street Bicycle Installation Project. This project will extend along Whitehall Street from Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard to Memorial Drive/Peachtree Street. This project includes the conversion of a three-lane roadway to two-travel lanes and two-bike lanes between I-20 to Memorial Drive/Peachtree Street. Once completed it will also include buffered bike lanes with key turn lanes at intersections. Flexible posts will add protection for bicyclists, where possible. Council Districts 4 and 12 will be impacted.”

New MARTA Route and Public Hearings

MARTA is hosting a series of public hearings discussing new and updated bus routes across the City of Atlanta. One of these routes, #832, will significantly impact connectivity for the neighborhood.

MARTA is also proposing slight changes to Route 49.

Below are the locations and times for the upcoming MARTA Public Hearings.This is a great opportunity to let MARTA know that you support the new route, which would help connect neighbors to West End, Grant Park, and East Atlanta. You can also find more information here.
