Driving to work this morning, Ashevilleans may want to consider another route. Detours, blockades, Asheville police and hoards of movie-set-workers are swarming around the BB&T building, blocking off most of Biltmore and the east end of Patton.
Detours suggest traffic continue down Oak/Woodfin Street, which is probably the better option — rather than trying to navigate closed lanes and slowed vehicles on College Street this morning.
At the moment, pedestrians are advised to walk down College (on the north side of Vance Monument), as film crews are angling cameras down Biltmore. Those trying to cross that intersection will be told to wait on the steps of Asheville Art Museum (and divert cameras from the movie set).
