The Georgia Viaduct in downtown Vancouver will be shut overnight Tuesday as a crew films a car chase scene.

The viaduct and stretches of Station and Prior streets are being used as a location for the Netflix series The Night Agent, which focuses on a low-level FBI operative drawn into a political conspiracy.

It is based on a Matthew Quirk bestseller about a guy who answers calls in the basement of the White House that never seem to come — until one does that leads him down a dangerous road involving a Russian mole at the highest levels of the US government.

The 10-episode series is being shot in Vancouver and — for obvious reasons — Washington, DC, and is expected to wrap up around the start of summer. Netflix hasn’t announced a release date.

BC-based Pico Productions started filming the chase scene on Monday night and will continue at 7 pm Tuesday. The crew will be there until Wednesday around 6 am

A filming notice says cars will chase each other past Pacific Central Station, along the 1000-900 block of Station Street, then onto the 200-block of Prior Street. The vehicles will then race in the wrong lane heading east before stopping about 200 meters atop the Georgia Viaduct.

It’s a good idea to avoid the area as there will be traffic closures and temporary no-stopping zones through Wednesday morning.
