Filming Restrictions on Highway One in Monterey County Due to Construction to Continue Through Summer
Due to the Caltrans highway widening project now in progress on Highway 1 between Hurricane Point and Rocky Creek Bridge in Monterey County, film permits cannot be issued for this portion of the highway which includes Bixby Creek Bridge.  Caltrans estimates road construction will last for three months.  Productions are advised to consider alternate locations on Highway 1 south of Ragged Point in San Luis Obispo County or north of Santa Cruz in San Mateo County.
Once the construction is completed, regular summer restrictions will be placed on filming activities on the segment of Highway 1 in San Luis Obispo and Monterey Counties between San Carpoforo Creek (SLO-1-71.3) and San Jose Creek (Mon-1-71.2) near Carmel Highlands through Labor Day (Sept. 2).  During this time period, intermittent traffic control (ITC), rolling breaks and/or lane closures will be prohibited. The restricted area includes Bixby Bridge.
Please contact Caltrans District 5 Permit Engineer Bryan Parker at (805) 549-3123 or California Film Commission Permit Coordinator, David Booth, at (323) 817-4104 with any questions.
