Pikes Peak Highway Closing For Filming Of 7th "Fast And The Furious"


You can't take in the view from the Pikes Peak Highway Wednesday, but you'll be able to see it on the big screen sometime soon.

A movie production has shut down a large portion of the highway through Thursday, then again on September 6 and 10. This is no small budget production--filming is for the seventh installment of the "Fast and the Furious" franchise.

Glen Cove to the summit will be closed Wednesday and Thursday; filming on the 6th and 10th will extend the road closure to the North Slope Recreation Area.

A rep with the highway says that the movie company is paying $175,000 for the closure.

If you're wanting to visit Pikes Peak you still can: the Cog Railway, as well as the Barr Trail, will both remain open.
