Production Alert: Caltrans Filming Permits Near LAX - Temporary Holiday Season Moratorium

In an ongoing effort to provide future filming opportunities on active freeways in Southern California, the California Film Commission (CFC) in conjunction with Caltrans and supported by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) is issuing this notice. There will be a temporary moratorium on any permit requests for closures and/or rolling breaks on any state freeways, freeway ramps or roads within a four (4) mile radius of LAX during the period November 18, 2016 through January 3, 2017. This short term measure, taken after careful review of the traffic counts and the time pressures precipitated by the volume of both cargo and travelers projected during the upcoming holiday season, will continue to ensure that the LAX area will remain viable for more anticipated filming requests after the holiday season has concluded.

Consideration of permit requests for filming prior to or after the moratorium dates will continue to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis with reference to the existing guidelines.

If you have any questions, please contact Caltrans District 7 Engineers Roger San Juan at 213-897-0282, or Charles Keeling at 213-897-4647, or CFC Permit Coordinator David Booth at 323-817-4104.
