MARIETTA, Ga. - Some roads are closing on account of zombies next week in an Atlanta suburb.

Police in Cobb County are warning drivers to be on guard for a zombie outbreak as filming of the hit drama series "The Walking Dead" begins there. They plan to post two message boards on a busy thoroughfare

Police officer Mike Bowman said drivers can expect zombies and simulated gunfire, which could lead to traffic delays next week.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports the message boards will be set up on Cobb Galleria Parkway.

The filming is for the second season of the AMC series, which depicts world devastation at the hands of zombies.
