Filming for "A Quiet Place 2" will close one of the Grand Island bridges to traffic on Sunday, according to the state Thruway Authority.

The northbound South Grand Island Bridge, which carries motorists from the Town of Tonawanda onto Grand Island, will be closed from midnight until 1 p.m. Sunday.

Traffic on the I-190 North and South will be limited to one lane in each direction on the southbound South Grand Island Bridge. Troopers will be periodically slowing and stopping traffic as well.

In addition, the entrance ramp from River Road onto the I-190 North will be closed.

Drivers should expect severe delays, especially after 9 a.m. Sunday, and are advised to find alternate routes, the Thruway Authority said.

This is the latest location in Western New York to be included in filming for Paramount Pictures’ sequel to the 2018 horror hit, “A Quiet Place.”

The sequel is being co-written and directed by John Krasinski, who did the same for the original. Emily Blunt, Krasinski's wife, will again appear in the sequel.

Film crews are scheduled to use Stenzel Street Field, a baseball park in North Tonawanda, next month. Another reported location of upcoming filming is the Orchard Park Railroad Depot.

Crews already shot scenes for the movie in Akron and Olcott in July, and last week were filming at a sound stage at an undisclosed location in Buffalo.

Paramount was last in the Buffalo area in 2015, shooting scenes for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" on Route 33, the Kensington Expressway.

“A Quiet Place 2” is scheduled to be released in March 2020, according to imdb.com.
