decepticon.jpg Now that we've spent a weekend taking in the Hollywood spectacle, it's time to buckle down once more and prepare for another weekend of street closures as film crews shoot more scenes for Transformers 3. But this one is going to be even more widespread and will include a closure of Michigan Ave starting tomorrow. Michigan Ave will be closed to traffic from Ontario Street to Wacker Drive starting tomorrow night at 8 p.m. and lasting through 5 a.m. Monday morning while Lower Michigan will be closed between Lower Wacker and Hubbard from 8 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. According to the Tribune, stretches of the street will still be open to foot traffic and businesses/stores will remain open. You can also expect more helicopters around the Trump Tower and Chicago River areas as aerial filming continues through the weekend.

Filming will also result in the rerouting of 22 CTA bus routes over the period from 7 p.m. tomorrow night until 5 a.m. Monday morning. Check out a detailed list of the affected routes and their changes right here.
