Filming for ‘The Best of Enemies’ starring Academy Award-nominee Taraji P. Henson is set to begin Thursday in downtown Macon and finish early Saturday morning.

Several roads will be closed or partially blocked during filming for a staged parade and other scenes around the Macon-Bibb Government Center.

Poplar Street and the sidewalks in front of the government center will be closed 11 a.m. to 9 a.m. both Thursday and Friday.

Detour signs for drivers will be posted, and pedestrians will be allowed to walk along those roads when they are not filming.

There will be temporary closures at the intersections of D.T. Walton Way and Poplar Street, as well as First Street and Poplar Street. Deputies in the area will provide instructions for drivers.
