This coming weekend, Saturday March 23 and Sunday March 24 Woodbridge Productions will be shooting an action scene on the Long Beach / Michael Valente bridge, closing only the Island Park-bound side of the bridge.

The filming will be for the pilot of a new NBC television series “The Blacklist”.

There’s talk of helicopters, car crashes, jackknifed trucks, actors rappelling down the bridge and more-oh my! They’re giving a heads-up so residents don’t mistake all the action for some kind of emergency.

Officials are saying traffic will be allowed to pass in both directions on the open side of the bridge, but expect the obvious delays this is going to cause,  and avoid the area if possible.

Traffic control will be a coordinated effort between City of Long Beach and Nassau County police.

Closure of one side is expected from 5am Saturday to 10am Sunday.
