PORT OF CATOOSA - Police have shut down a Tulsa street as reality show "Street Outlaws" sets up to shoot an episode called "Illegal Street Racing" in the Tulsa area.

Eastbound Port Road between East 44th Street North to North 74th East Avenue - north of the Tulsa airport - is now a closed course and will continue to be for about 15 hours. The Tulsa street is turning into a film set.

The barricades start where you can turn into the Tulsa Air and Space Museum.

Police say spectators are not welcome, and if anyone tries to stop and watch or take photos, they will be told to move along. Generally, you want to avoid driving between Sheridan and Mingo.

Westbound lanes will be closed when the races are going on. Ten police officers, a fire truck and paramedic are all on standby during the filming of the episode.

"Street Outlaws" is a Discovery Channel show in its third season. The City Council voted Thursday night to allow the show's producers to close the road for the street races.

Port Road is expected to reopen at 5 a.m. Sunday. The special Events permit shows the production crew is responsible for trash cleanup.
