Filming to impact Cedar Rapids traffic on Friday

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The City of Cedar Rapids says the making of a movie will have an impact on some Cedar Rapids traffic on Friday.

The Cedar Rapids Public Works Department says Valor Way SW, from Diagonal Drive to the end of the street, will be closed for the filming of "The Summerland Project."

Valor Way SW, which is directly behind the Cedar Rapids Police Department, will be blocked by barricades.

"The Summerland Project," written by Rob Merritt of Cedar Rapids, began as a play in 2011 at the Theatre Cedar Rapids Underground Festival. The stage version made its main stage premiere in January of 2013.

The film version stars Kate Vernon, Ed Begley, Jr. and Debra Wilson.
