Details for this weekend’s high-flying ‘Transformers 3’ shoot in Chicago

Here’s the latest on this weekend’s Transformer’s 3 shoot in Chicago:

On Saturday and Sunday, stuntmen will deploy from helicopters above the Pritzker Pavilion, fly between the Aon and Blue Cross-Blue Shield buildings then land in Lakeshore East Park.

A stuntman will also jump from a helicopter above Daley Bicentennial Plaza and fly into the Lakeshore East Park between the Blue Cross-Blue Shield building and 340 On The Park. This shoot is expected to happen between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. intermittently.

In addition to the street closures that start tonight at 8 p.m. and last through 5 a.m. Monday on LaSalle Street (from Jackson Boulevard to Randolph Street), here is some additional street closure information:

Washington Street will be closed from Wells to Clark streets and Randolph Street will be closed from Wells to Wacker from 6 a.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday. There also will be brief and intermittent closures of intersecting streets at LaSalle between Jackson, Adams, Madison and Monroe.
