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 21, 2015 through January 6, 2016. 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
Please call the Caltrans permit coordinator, David Booth, at the California Film Commission at 323-817-4104 with any questions or comments.
