The City of North Bend announced it will close Bendigo Blvd between Park Street and North Bend Way (section between Twede’s Cafe and Bartell Drugs) on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 5PM until Friday, September 18, 2015 at 2:30AM.
According to a press release, detours will be marked and the city apologized “for any inconvenience the road closure may cause residents.”
The press release did not state the reason for the closure, but as filming for the new Twin Peaks series has been happening all week at Twede’s (AKA Double R Diner), many resident presume it is to accommodate filming.
In a recent statement on social media, the private Twin Peaks creators urged fans to ease up on photos and videos of the show’s filming and sets in North Bend. Since the Twede’s transformation started last week, many fan websites have been posting photos and videos of Twin Peaks daily filming activity.
David Lynch and Mark Frost statement:
“We’re so happy people are excited about being back to where it all began. Like any good mystery, it’s all suppose to be top secret, and would love it if everyone helped keep it that way!”
In response, at least Twin Peaks Fan website has agreed not to post photos of the filming process until the final episode of the series has aired.
