The cast of the new Netflix series “I Am Not Okay With This” — an adaptation of a graphic novel by the same name. The series will be filming in Bradford Woods June 19-21, 2019, which will result in several road closures.

Several roads in Bradford Woods are expected to be closed, or will have limited access, between June 19 and 21 for filming of the Netflix series “I Am Not Okay With This.”

Borough council approved a “soft” closure at both ends of Lincoln Road where it intersects with Bradford and Forest roads. A detour will be posted when the road is closed. Residents who live on the road will still be able to access their homes.

Filming is expected to occur daily between 10 a.m. and 1 a.m. There will be a posted detour route for through traffic.

East Harding Road and Spruce Lane will be closed to all vehicle traffic while filming is taking place. Residents who live along these roads will be able to walk to their homes or drive there while filming is at a halt.

Borough council, which approved the road closures, is requiring officers from the Northern Regional Police Department to be present during the road closures to ensure the safety of residents and the production crews working in the area.

A private security company hired by Netflix also will be in the area during filming.

The series, which is an adaptation of the graphic novel by Charles Forsman, is about a teenage girl navigating the trials and tribulations of high school while dealing with the complexities of her family, her budding sexuality and the mysterious superpowers just beginning to awaken from deep within her, according to producers.

The show stars Sophia Lillis, who is best known for her role as Beverly Marsh in the horror film “It,” the film adaptation of Stephen King’s 1986 novel.

Residents with concerns or questions about how filming might affect access to their properties can contact Joshua Jenks, assistant location manager for Netflix, at: 315-525-9500.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
