Parking will be limited along portions of Chartres and Decatur streets on Tuesday as production crews film scenes for “NCIS: New Orleans.”

The 500 blocks of Chartres and Decatur streets will be affected between midnight and 11:59 p.m., although crews will arrive on location and will film between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., according to CBS Studios, which is currently producing episodes for the series that’s in its seventh and, most likely, final season.

During filming, parking along the lakeside portion of the 500 block of Decatur Street and the riverside portion of the 500 block of Chartres Street will be impacted.

Crew member parking and base camp will be located in private lots to minimize the impact in the area, and all driveways and handicap zones will be respected, according to CBS Studios, which will also have New Orleans Police and security details on site.

CBS Studios is working with Film New Orleans, an agency that regulates site location permits in the city, on the production, which stars actors Scott Bakula as the fictional Navy Criminal Investigative Service supervising special agent Dwayne Cassius Pride and assistant supervising special agent Hannah Khoury, played by CCH Pounder.

“We realize that you may have had a great deal of filming in the past and that it can sometimes be a nuisance,” according to CBS Studios. “We work closely with Film New Orleans to help ensure that we adhere to the standards they have set forth.”

Anyone with questions regarding planned deliveries, construction and with concerns regarding parking or the filming may contact CBS Studios site location managers, including:
