Re: Film Production Activity on Highway 1 in the Big Sur Area, 4/28/22

In an effort to better communicate with Big Sur residents regarding upcoming filming activities, this is to notify you of an upcoming permitted film shoot scheduled for 4/28/2022 from 3:30pm to 7:30pm.  Our work will require intermittent traffic control (ITC) at and near Bixby Bridge and Hwy 1 (Mile Markers 49 to 60).  As per our permit, a portion of the Bixby Bridge turnout will be used for brief parking to make sure all parties are present. (No more than 50% of turnout will be used.)Otherwise we not require any parking until the filming has finished.

We will be hiring 4 California Highway Patrol officers to facilitate the ITC – ensuring public safety and access with only brief traffic holds of 5 minutes. 

We have taken all steps to ensure that the required permits have been obtained from Caltrans and Monterey County and will comply with restrictions necessary for a safe and efficient shoot. 

The production company would like to show its appreciation to the community with a donation to Big Sur Fire Brigade. Thanks for all you do to keep the coast safe and beautiful.

After the filming we are planning to park and dine at the Big Sur River Inn. Anyone who needs to be present with us for the filming is welcome to join us for dinner. 

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.  I hope this advance notice is helpful for you to plan your day.
