AMC MONUMENT RETURNS TO CONTINUE FILMING IN DOWNTOWN HOPEWELL, VIRGINIA
Hopewell, VA. The City of Hopewell is excited to announce that AMC Monument will return to the City to resume filming. The Television show, with a working title of Monument, which is a spinoff of the popular “Walking Dead” series is returning to downtown Hopewell for filming of additional episodes. Episode Six will be filmed primarily in the Hopewell Downtown area beginning next week.
There will be some inconveniences to motorist, but it is the intention of the crew to allow pedestrian traffic as much as possible to enable all merchants to remain open as they desire. Filming, as well as set prep work, will occur off and on Friday, September 27th through Thursday October 10th. Much of the filming will only involve some brief sidewalk closings or intermittent traffic delays, but two days will include the full closure of a portion of East Broadway to vehicular traffic.
- Tuesday, October 8th-East Broadway from Hopewell Street to Randolph Road (Route 10), will be closed from 7:00 A.M. until 6:00 A.M. Thursday, October 10th.
During the entire two week period motorist and pedestrians will be able to access the area business with some minor delays, the entire time as they desire.
