Travis Pastrana’s Annapolis stunt at City Dock set for Oct. 22, street closures, parking restrictions expected

Travis Pastrana will jump over Ego Alley in a stock car after all.

San Diego-based film crew Hoonigan Industries will film Pastrana, an action sports star and Annapolis native, completing the stunt in a specially designed rally car from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 22.

Officials recently approved permits for the event. It is expected to cause road closures and parking restrictions in the downtown area, said Mitchelle Stephenson, a city spokesperson.

Residents and visitors should expect areas around City Dock, Newman Street, Compromise Street and Dock Street to be closed from 6:30 to 10 a.m. School Street, Church Circle and West Street will be closed from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Taylor Avenue and Poplar Avenue behind the Graduate Hotel will also be closed.

A request for comment to Hoonigan Industries was not immediately returned.

Stephenson said those who wish to watch could be turned away by the police or film crew because of the potential danger the stunt poses.

She added the stunt would not cost city taxpayers anything. Costs for police and fire staffing, clean up and other services will be reimbursed by Hoonigan Industries.

Residential parking in affected areas of downtown will not be available. For those residents, free passes for Hillman and Gotts’ Court garages are available through the city’s parking operator SP+. Passes can be picked up at the parking office at 60 West St. between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday to Friday. Proof of residency is required.

Representatives from Hoonigan have been going door-to-door in affected areas of the city to distribute letters explaining the film project to residents, Stephenson said. The city has also posted an FAQ on its website.

Signs notifying of the road closures will be posted 48 hours ahead of time. Vehicles that are not moved will be towed.

The event was jeopardized last month after details about it were made public, prompting Pastrana to consider moving the event out of the city.
