The Walking Dead to shoot scenes in PTC this week
Some roads, cart paths closed in SE PTC through Wed.
Zombie alert for southeastern Peachtree City: Camera crews will be filming scenes for the mega-hit cable TV series “The Walking Dead,” resulting in some closed roads and cart paths near Starr’s Mill High School through Wednesday of this week.
The movie-making will slow and sometimes stop traffic in the southeastern corner of Peachtree City, according to the Peachtree City Police Department.
The areas affected include Redwine Road at Robinson Road, Summer Place and Foreston Place, police said in a traffic alert emailed Sunday afternoon.
“A movie production will be closing streets frequently on Monday, Aug. 25, Tuesday, Aug. 26, and Wednesday, Aug. 27,” police said. “Avoid travel in the area if possible.”
Redwine and Robinson roads are heavily traveled connector roads, while the other two are within residential subdivisions.
In a letter sent to residents of Foreston Place Aug. 20, Stalwart Films location manager Michael Riley said the production company is closing the entrance to the subdivision at Redwine Road to both vehicular and golf cart traffic Monday through Wednesday.
“We understand that the golf cart path closure may be an inconvenience, but we have determined that it is essential in order to achieve a maximum level of safety for the crew and the public,” Riley wrote.
