Town of Caswell Beach
Movie Location Filming
Caswell Beach Road Area, Public Parking Lot and Beach Strand
Be advised that there will be activity in Caswell Beach on up to three days this week to set up and shoot scenes from a 20th Century Fox film entitled "The Longest Ride," based on a book by North Carolinian Nicholas Sparks.

A section of Caswell Beach Road between Pinehurst Drive and Ocean Greens Lane will be closed for parts of a couple of days this week for preparation (taping over yellow and white lines on the road, temporarily removing road signs and street lights) and for the actual filming. Traffic will be detoured along Foxfire Lane during these 2 limited road closures. Signs will be posted to direct vehicles to the detour.

The main beach access parking lot will be partially closed to the public, also for parts of a couple of days around mid-week. The section which includes the ramp access for disabled persons will remain open, as will several parking spaces in that area.

Other activity will be taking place in and around an oceanfront house in the 200 block of Caswell Beach Road. Large trucks will be parked at roadside and traffic will be congested in that area. Please avoid or limit travel in that area as much as possible.

Finally, a few ATV-type vehicles will be accessing and driving along the beach strand on parts of three days this week, between the town vehicle access in the 800 block and the shoot location in the 200 block. The operators have been advised to stay away from dunes and to drive on the hard pack sand near the water to protect the beach.

We appreciate your cooperation.

Contact Town Administrator, Chad Hicks, at 910-278-5471 during regular operating hours (Mon. - Fri., 8 am - 4:30 pm) or via email at if you have any questions about this work.
