Please note: Supply and Demand will be filming a commercial for Hyundai Automobiles in Seattle on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 between the hours of 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm. We will be filming cars driving on Magnolia Blvd. and are working with the City of Seattle and the Seattle Police Department for all permitting and traffic control.
Portions of our filming will be completed using a drone traveling above Magnolia Blvd. The drone will be operated by a pilot licensed with the FAA and approval of City of Seattle Office of Film + Music’s Master Film Permit.
For safety purposes, it will be necessary to clear all vehicles from the streets on which we will be running. We are asking residents not to park along Magnolia Blvd. during this time.
During actual filming Seattle Police will hold vehicle traffic, and film production staff will hold pedestrians for safety. These holds will be intermittent and for only a few minutes each time.
Because we are filming at a number of locations we will only be at any one location for a brief period of time then moving onto the next location. The locations we will be filming that may affect you are: Magnolia Blvd. between W. Raye & W. Howe.
These streets will all remain open except for short holds while we are actually on the road. We thank you in advance for your help and cooperation!

Please be advised that a second public meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 21st, 6:30-8:30 pm at Magnolia Community Center (2550 34th Ave West) for the community to learn about the vision for Fort Lawton and the environmental review process. Both meetings offer the opportunity to provide written public comment on the scope of the proposal.
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) held its first stakeholder meeting on May 4 with key members of the Magnolia community, including the Magnolia Community Council, Port of Seattle, King County Metro and Seattle Public Schools, with the goal to understand key issues the community faces when Magnolia Bridge is closed, including experiences driving in the Magnolia area following the 1997 landslide and 2001 Nisqually Earthquake. The valuable feedback helped SDOT prepare a draft emergency transportation plan and possible short-term traffic improvements if the bridge is closed. SDOT representatives will present this draft plan to the same group of stakeholders at a second meeting scheduled for June 22. The general public is invited to attend this meeting.
Following the meeting, SDOT will post the draft plan and short term improvements on their website. This will provide the public opportunities to stay informed and comment on the proposed plan. In addition to emergency planning, the transportation department is in the process of securing a traffic engineering firm to look at a long-term permanent solution to Magnolia Bridge. To ensure the safety of all Seattle bridges, SDOT proactively conducts frequent inspections and maintenance of each bridge – including the Magnolia Bridge.
The second Magnolia Bridge Planning Study stakeholder meeting will take place on Thursday, June 22, 1 – 2:30 p.m. at the Magnolia Community Center’s Madrona Room. For more information, visit SDOT’s project website or email email@example.com.
