And yet ANOTHER traffic issue this week…filming.

I have written to the Cal Trans permit coordinator, and let him know that this was absolutely nuts due to the CT work schedule this week. I even went so far as to ask if he had even READ the schedule? I remember being told NO permits would be issued between Memorial Day and Labor Day for any filming. Here it is – please don’t shoot the messenger, but I will include an email for the guy who approved this below, so that any of you can write him.

THURSDAY, 6/14/18

Possible Worlds LLC will be filming for 1/2 day at Carmel River Monastery Beach.

Posted parking will be in place along Hwy. 1 from 6 AM to 3 PM for a handful of working vehicles.

Additional vehicles will park off-site north of the beach, in the State Parks meadow just past the now-closed Bay School.

Filming activities will not impact the roadway but CHP will be present to assist in safety and assure smooth traffic flow.

Filming should be concluded by 12 Noon.

At that time, most vehicles will move to the Grimes Ranch property at Palo Colorado.

3 large trucks will park in a pullout on the west side of Highway 1.

This pullout is located 1,000 feet south of Hwy 1 and Palo Colorado Road.

This parking will not impact any sight lines for resident vehicles entering or exiting Palo Colorado Road.

This parking will be in place from 6 AM to 9 PM each day, Thurs. 6/14 thru Sat. 6/16/18.

Remaining work vehicles will park well off the highway, on Grimes Ranch property on the east side of Hwy 1.

From 11 AM to 8 PM, 9 vehicles will park in reserved spaces near the entrance to Garrapata Beach.

They will be positioned at the very north end of the large pullout on the west side of Hwy 1.

Filming likely will conclude in the late afternoon.

Once finished, the company will consolidate at Grimes Ranch and work there.

FRIDAY 6/15

In the morning from 6 AM to 3 PM, 9 vehicles will park in reserved spaces in a pullout at Garrapata Bluffs, located at mile marker 66.5.

Once this has concluded, the company will consolidate at Grimes Ranch and work there.

SATURDAY 6/16

All filming will take place on Grimes Ranch property.

  1. Thank you Kate. It defies all sense and boarders on negligence. Tuesday afternoon, 2PM bumper to bumper at Highlands Inn…on a Tuesday! When are they going to start thinking of residents?

  2. I just spent 45 minutes getting from the Highlands gas station to Monastery beach before I gave up and turned around. The citizens who pay their salaries are obviously not considered in any of these plans. What a mess.

  3. All true, but by my calendar it is a Monday – still applies, as this is NOT a holiday Monday!
