During filming, they will be closing 1st Avenue between Gilbert Street and 4th Street to through traffic. They will allow access for residents to the First Avenue Park. For certain angles of filming, there will be intermittent traffic control on LaGrange Street between Long Place and Buchanan Street, at the railroad crossing of Spring Street and at the railroad crossing of West Washington Street.

The company also plans to park their filming equipment at the property adjacent to the railroad tracks located at 27 1st Avenue.
