All lanes of the Queensway Bridge will be closed to traffic starting at 5:00PM on Thursday until 6:00AM on Friday, April 1.

20th Century Fox’s Rosewood, a series starring Morris Chestnut as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr., a cunning private pathologist solving murders in Miami, Florida, was granted a permit to film on the bridge.

Filming will consist of “exterior dialogue with picture on bridge and explosion scene” with 20 extras, according to the notice distributed by the City of Long Beach.

Nearby residents and visitors are advised that loud explosions may be heard tonight from 7:30PM to 10:00PM.
