"Captain America" star Chris Evans tweeted an apology to Cleveland motorists stuck in traffic as a result of filming for the super hero movie's sequel.

Evans posted the apology Sunday, two days after filming for "Captain America: Winter Soldier" closed down the West Shoreway in both directions, causing traffic on Interstate 90 and Detroit Avenue to experience backups of more than an hour, WKYC-TV, Cleveland, reported Monday.

"Sorry we're screwing up your traffic, Cleveland!" Evans posted on his Twitter account. "You've been a very gracious host."

The message had been retweeted more than 1,000 times as of Monday morning with many positive responses accepting Evans' apology.

The movie, which also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Robert Redford, is slated for release in April 2014.
