The movie, "The Carrington Event," is in production in Apex and explores the impact of a solar flare hitting the Earth.
It centers around an average American family that is addicted to technology, but live on a mini-farm on the outskirts of a large town. Throughout the film, they have to deal with the aftermath of a solar storm that cuts power to the farm and causes a total blackout in the town.
Because N.C. 751 is used as a rush hour connection between U.S. 64, I-40 and Durham, all lanes must be re-opened between 4 and 7 p.m. Thursday and between 6 and 9 a.m., and 4 and 7 p.m. on Friday.
Lane closures can be in place at all other times, but must be removed if traffic becomes backed up significantly on alternate routes.
