  • CLEVELAND -- Captain America himself has apologized to Cleveland drivers.

    "Sorry we're screwing up your traffic, Cleveland!" actor Chris Evans tweeted Sunday afternoon. "You've been a very gracious host."

    The "Captain America: Winter Soldier" star sent the tweet just two days after crews closed the West Shoreway down in each direction from Lake Avenue to E. 9th Street.

    Once the closure was in place, traffic was heavy and clogged along I-90 and Detroit Avenue -- the two primary suggested detour routes. Delays for some drivers lasted more than an hour Friday morning.

    Approximately 35,000 drivers use the Shoreway every morning.

    The tweet, which was the first one Evans has sent out since he's arrived in Cleveland, gained lots of attention with more than 1,000 retweets in a matter of hours -- many very supportive.

    - "Not all of us in CLE mind the traffic," local celebrity chef Johnathan Sawyer (@chefsawyer) tweeted in response. "We are happy you guys are filming and eating here #rideyourbikeCLE."

    - "Not all of us in CLE mind the traffic," another wrote.

    - "Apology accepted," Roman replied. "Glad to do what we can. Sorry in advance if the weather suddenly changes."

    - "It's worth it! Some ppl don't get it," Michelle wrote.

    By Monday morning, that message was retweeted more than 1,000 times with dozens upon dozens of replies -- mostly positive.

    The Shoreway will remain closed for two weeks through June 14 as Marvel continues production of the superhero sequel.

    "Captain America: Winter Soldier" has been filming in Cleveland since last month. Some of the previous filming locations include E. 6th Street at Rockwell and Euclid at E. 9th.

    The film, which is slated for release next April, stars Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Robert Redford.
