    Default 540, Davis Dr detour

    N.C. 540, Davis Drive closed for movie filming

    Morrisville, N.C. Portions of N.C. Highway 540 and Davis Drive will be shut down through next Friday for the filming of "Main Street," a movie starring Orlando Bloom and Colin Firth.

    Since Friday morning, one eastbound lane of N.C. 540, between Davis Drive and N.C. Highway 55 in Morrisville, and one lane of the Davis Drive exit have been closed. That closure will remain in effect until next Friday.

    Starting Monday, nightly closures will shut down all of N.C. 540, between Davis Drive and N.C. 55, and Davis Drive, between Kitt Creek Road and George Watts Hill Drive. Those closures will last from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. and continue through Friday.

    This section of I-540 will temporarily be renamed "Main Street".

    One of the vehicles expected to travel this section of road is "The Ford of the Rings".

    An additional detour is accessible via "Will Turner Creek Road".

    When taking this detour, beware "The Pirates of the Cary-bean".

    Durham County will temporarily be renamed "Bloom County".
