Two roads will be closed on Friday, July 12, from midnight to 11:59 p.m., due to filming, according a press release from DeKalb County officials.

Fannin Drive, between Rocky Pine Road and Salem Road, will be closed to through-traffic. The 4100 block of Sandy Lake Drive East will also be closed.

The state considers itself a “camera ready” destination for film and television production. According to data provided by the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Georgia-lensed feature films and television productions generated an economic impact of $6 billion.

Residents living in the neighborhood will have access during the closure.

Road closure and detour signs will be placed in the area to advise motorists of traffic restrictions.

Information: DeKalb County Roads and Drainage Department at 404-294-2878.
