The movie company's permit for closure of Ky. 333 at the Ky. 2199 intersection in Meade County has been postponed.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet rescheduled the permitted event for next week after encountering public concerns about the closure. Originally set to begin Tuesday morning and last through Thursday morning, it was amended to begin at 2 p.m. Saturday and last until 3 a.m. Monday.

The closure is in the eastern corner of Breckinridge County near the Meade and Hardin County lines and will allow crews from Antebellum Pictures to layer a dirt surface over the existing asphalt in order to create an 1861 setting for a movie shoot.

Local residents should be aware of signed detours. People traveling east on Ky. 333 from Breckinridge County are detoured north to Bewleyville by turning right on Ky. 1238, right on Ky. 1735 and back to Ky. 333 to go south toward Big Spring. Anyone traveling northwest on Ky. 220 from Hardin County heading to Breckinridge County follows this detour route in reverse. Mobile message boards are set up to alert motorists of upcoming detours.
