Street Closure and Traffic Delays

On Tuesday, October 22, 2013, Cleland Productions is filming in Ashland for the movie “Wild” based on the book of the same name.  Filming will require some street closures, traffic rerouting and occasional traffic delays.  Residents, commuters and visitors may want to adjust their travel in and around Ashland accordingly.
 
The film production equipment and vehicles will use both Winburn Way and the Historic Ashland Armory on Oak Street as ‘base camp’ from late Monday evening through early Wednesday morning.  They will be shooting scenes on and around the Plaza and will park 1995 or older vehicles in that area to reflect the period in which the movie is set.  Traffic is rerouted both for the safety of the cast and crew, and so that vehicles newer than 1995 are not inadvertently captured in the background of the film.
 
Please note that during the filming production, no sidewalks will be closed. However, depending upon the scene being filmed, pedestrians may be asked to wait a few minutes before proceeding along the sidewalk:
 
The following street and parking closures will be in effect.
