Please be advised that on Monday and Tuesday, September 28th and 29th, 2015, from 5 AM- 10 PM, the following areas have been permitted for film shoots: Fire Fighters Field, including sidewalk and Tram traffic circle, headed towards the West Roadway leading to the West Seawall near the water headed North Bound.
The film shoots will include chase scenes, a simulated press conference and prop weapons, which will fire off blanks with minimal sound. The chase scene will take place along the tram road going East to West from Firefighter's field to the grass area just North of the West roadway guard booth.
During this time, expect intermittent traffic delays and increased pedestrian traffic in the area. We appreciate your cooperation during this project.
