CAPE COD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Traffic on the Bourne Bridge was squeezed into a single lane in both directions Sunday morning due to the filming of a TV show.
According to the Cape Cod Times, the cast and crew of the Starz cable TV series "Hightown" were on scene to shoot the show's second season. The setup reduced traffic on the bridge to one lane each way from 5 a.m. to noon.
Town Administrator Anthony Schiavi told the Board of Selectmen last week that filming would happen underneath the bridge, and the remainder of Sunday's filming will take place on Army Corps of Engineers or Bourne Recreation Authority property, the Times reports.
WBZ NewsRadio's traffic reporter Dave Struffalino said there were traffic restrictions in place around the Bourne Bridge and at the nearby rotary, with some drivers slowing to catch a glimpse of the activity in the area.
A TV crime drama series, "Hightown" debuted on Starz in May. It follows the story of an alcoholic Fisheries Services officer who discovers the body of a woman washed up on a Provincetown beach during Carnival weekend.
