On Sunday, August 18th, 2019, the Metropolitan Transit Authority (METRO) will host CicLAVia – Meet the Hollywoods. Beginning at 9 am, portions of area streets will be closed to vehicular traffic allowing access to pedestrians and cyclists.
Intended to create a stronger sense of community, CicLAvia closes streets for residents to run, walk, bicycle, or skate upon, limiting their availability for motor vehicles.
Closures are expected to affect Santa Monica Boulevard between San Vicente Boulevard and Highland Avenue, Highland Avenue between Santa Monica and Hollywood Boulevards, Hollywood Blvd between Highland and Vermont Avenues.
Filmmakers should be aware of street closures and crossing points along the event route (see the map below) and discuss potential conflicts with FilmLA 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 7 am and will remain in place until approximately 6 pm.
As always, FilmLA is available to assist you with filming logistics. Should you have any questions about how CicLAvia could affect your filming plans, please contact our Solution Services team by calling 213.977.8600 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
