On Sunday, October 8, 2017, the Metropolitan Transit Authority (METRO) will host CicLAVia – Heart of LA. Beginning at 9 am, area streets along Glendale from Bellevue to Mariachi Plaza and N Broadway from 7th to Bishops Road will be closed to vehicular traffic to allowing access to pedestrians and cyclists. Intended to create a stronger sense of community in the Chinatown, DTLA, Echo Park and Boyle Heights areas, CICLAVIA closes streets for residents to run, walk, bicycle, or skate upon, limiting their availability for motor vehicles.
Filmmakers should be aware of street closures and crossing points along the event route (see the map below) and discuss potential conflicts with FilmL.A. when applying for permits to film in the vicinity.
Even those not filming in the event area should take traffic impacts into consideration. Road closures will begin as early as 6 a.m. and will remain in place until approximately 3:30 p.m.
As always, FilmL.A. is available to assist you with filming logistics. Should you have any questions about how CicLAvia could affect your filming plans, please contact FilmL.A.’s Production Planning Team at (213) 977-8600.
