According to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC):
Please be advised on Sunday, April, 19th, 2015, Tram Road has been permitted for a Film Shoot, which will involve the use of various prop weapons. Tram Road will be closed to vehicular traffic from 10 AM to 11 PM. All vehicular traffic will be directed to use the Transverse Road or Traffic Circle to travel North bound.

The Red Bus will disembark South bound passengers at the Tram as normal, but will pick up North bound passengers at the Q102 bus stop on the West Roadway. Expect intermittent traffic delays and increased pedestrian traffic in the area during this time.
Here's the world of The Strain.

It's a good show.
