I-10 traffic

File photo: Eastbound traffic on Interstate 10 backs up on Interstate 10 in New Orleans.

If you're headed down I-10 through New Orleans Wednesday evening, be prepared to take an alternate route.

Both directions of I-10 will be impacted from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. by a rolling road block as crews stage scenes for the movie "Queen & Slim."

Editor's Note: This story has been updated to clarify that the entire interstate will not be closed.

The rolling roadblock will occur between the Tulane Avenue on-ramp and Esplanade exit headed east, and the Orleans on-ramp and Canal Street exit headed west.

The Louisiana State Police will be on-hand during the closures.

For a rolling roadblock, traffic will be slowed down while a camera car rolls and films. They crew is filming a driving scene approaching the city of New Orleans. The entire stretch of the Interstate will not be closed. 

The movie, slated for release in 2019, is a romantic drama starring Chloe Sevigny and Daniel Kaluuya. The movie's IMDB description reads: "A couple's first date takes an unexpected turn when a police officer pulls them over."
