The intersection of High Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard will have “brief, intermittent closures to prevent vehicles from appearing in the background of various scenes of the movie,” according to the city.
Detours during the closures will be posted. In addition, the movie production will pay Hamilton police officers to be stationed at various high-traffic intersections along High Street, Dayton Street, and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to direct traffic.
The High/Main Bridge over the Great Miami River will remain open during filming, according to the city.
In an effort to alleviate traffic congestion, the city will temporarily suspend construction along River Road and will work with CSX and Norfolk Southern to ensure all railroad crossings are not closed due to construction.
“We’re excited to have another major motion picture filmed here in Hamilton,” Mayor Pat Moeller said. “Having the movie industry in Hamilton continues to benefit our local businesses, both small and large, while showcasing the city to tens of thousands of people across the country.”
In 2016, Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed into law a revised Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit, which raised the annual incentive cap to $40 million, removed the $5 million per project cap, and changed the incentive rate to a flat 30 percent on all production dollars spent in Ohio.
