Downtown Mason will be a bit difficult to traverse early next week as movie filming will close several downtown streets. The Lansing State Journal is reporting Friday that the Ingham County Clerk's office is suggesting residents use its Downtown Lansing branch for any business Monday and Tuesday, as street closures will put a strain on parking near the Ingham County Courthouse in Mason.

Adding that report to one by LSJ on Sunday, it appears a movie crew will be filming scenes in the Courthouse Square. The crew has requested that Jefferson Street be closed between East Columbia Street to just south of Ash Street; Sycamore Street, Maple Street, and Ash Street (M-36) all between Park Street and Barnes Street; and Barnes Street between Sycamore Street to just south of Ash Street.
