Filming for Tom Cruise movie to impact downtown traffic Tuesday
BATON ROUGE - Filming for the next movie in the Jack Reacher series starring Tom Cruise will again affect traffic in downtown Baton Rouge this week.
Florida Street between 7th and 9th streets will be closed to traffic on Tuesday, Jan. 5 from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. so that more scenes for the film Jack Reacher: Never Go Back can be shot. Baton Rouge Police will be on location with traffic restrictions going into effect before, during and after the closure. No parking signs will be posted in the 700 block of Florida Street (North side) along with the 200 and 300 blocks of N. 7th Street (Both sides).
City officials say message boards warning about the closure have been up since New Year’s Eve, and film production is collaborating with BRPD, DOTD and city traffic engineers to minimize delays for traffic detoured during filming. Trucks will be rerouted to North Street to avoid the closure.
