Filming of New Netflix Movie to Cause Road Closures in DC


Rustin, an upcoming Netflix drama, will start filming in the District of Columbia, prompting the temporary closure of several streets on Thursday.

North Carolina Avenue between 6th Street and 8th Street Southeast will be posted as “emergency no parking” and closed to vehicular traffic from 11 am to 8 pm, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) announced in a press statement

Possible updates to closed streets and listed times based on changing conditions can be followed on the Twitter page of DC Police Traffic.

“The public should expect parking restrictions along the street and should be guided by the posted emergency no parking signage. All vehicles that are parked in violation of the emergency no parking signs will be ticketed and towed,” said DC police.

Drivers may experience additional delays in the area close to the shooting of the Netflix movie. MPD and the DC Department of Transportation advise opting for alternative routes or driving with caution due to increased pedestrian traffic that can be anticipated.

Directed by George C. Wolfe, Rustin recounts the life story of gay, civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, who organized the 1963 March on Washington. Netflix will release the movie in 2023.
