Just as a reminder to my previous post, the area around Louis St Laurent and Hwy 25 will be closed to traffic as MADD Canada is filming its 3rd documentary in Milton.
The filming will include a simulated car accident so if you do see activity there, thats the reason. Halton Police and Milton Fire Department will be on hand during the filming and area residents have been informed.
Here’s the email received today with further details.
Further to my e-mail from a few weeks ago, please be advised that filming permits have been issued for the above filming project which is a documentary.
Filming will be taking place on October 25,26,27, 2012 (rain date October 28, 2012)from 6:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.
Louis St Laurent Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Bronte Street South and Diefenbaker Street during the filming as a car crash will be taking place. Advanced Road Closures have been in place for the past week and detour signage will be installed during the filming. Halton Regional Police will be on site during the entire filming project.
Access to local residents will be maintained via Diefenbaker Street and Leiterman Drive.
Milton Fire Department will be on site while the crash is occurring. After the crash the car will be removed off of the street and placed on the shoulder until the next night. The filming company will be signing the car so passerby’s know it is related to filming and not an actual crash.
Area residents have been notified and signed a petition in support of the filming.
It should be noted that this is the 3rd time that MADD has filmed a documentary in Milton.
