D.C. road closures due to filming “LBJ” movie starring Woody Harrelson

WASHINGTON — D.C. police are warning of several street closures Saturday morning due to the filming of the movie “LBJ” starring Woody Harrelson.

According to a press release about the movie, Academy-winner Rob Reiner is directing the film which will center on the period in which Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was thrust into the presidency after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Reiner says he wants to portray LBJ as a “complex man.”

The filming Saturday will shut down a number of streets from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. according to police. During this time, Pennsylvania Avenue, NW will have “intermittent traffic control” where roadways may be shut down for 2-3 minute intervals, but will remain open to traffic during all other times.

Additionally, the following street closures for this event are listed below:

• Pennsylvania Avenue, NW from 4th Street to 11th Street, NW

• Constitution Avenue, NW from 7th Street to 4th Street, NW

• 10th Street, NW from E Street to Constitution Ave, NW

• 9th Street, NW from E Street to Constitution Ave, NW

• 7th Street, NW from Constitution Ave to D ST, NW

• 6th Street, NW from Constitution Ave to D ST, NW

“All street closures and listed times are subject to change based upon prevailing or unexpected conditions. Motorists could encounter possible delays if operating in the vicinity of this event and may wish to consider alternative routes,” D.C. police said Friday.
