Both directions of Abercorn Street between Columbus Drive and East 52nd street will be closed to through traffic beginning today (Friday, Nov. 12) and lasting through Saturday, Nov. 20, to accommodate production and construction work associated with the television show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, at the corner of East 55th and Abercorn.

The detour diverts northbound Abercorn traffic onto Habersham Street, and southbound traffic onto Bull Street (see attached detour map below). Motorists are urged to avoid the area during the week. This is a closed construction site and no spectators or volunteers will be allowed to park near the build site. However, the production team has set up free off-site parking at the Coastal Empire Fairgrounds and all spectators and volunteers will be shuttled to the site. Spectators are asked to respect the privacy and property of the surrounding neighborhood.

A special web site has been established with details of shoot. Visit or follow them on Facebook – or Twitter –
