PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Another day in Gotham City means more restrictions and road closures for local drivers.

On Wednesday, film crews working on “The Dark Knight Rises” shot a wintry scene on Oliver Avenue downtown. Then, on Thursday, the Batmobile was spotted inside the Wabash Tunnel.

There have been several road closures that made for a tough commute and there seems to be a new set of closures and restrictions every day.

Crews closed down Cherry Way from 3rd Avenue to Fifth Avenue at 6 p.m. Thursday with the closure running through 6 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13.

During that same time frame, Forbes Avenue is closed from Grant Street to Smithfield Street, and 4th Avenue is closed from Grant Street to Smithfield Street.

Other closures include:

  • 3rd Avenue from Cherry Way to Market Street
  • 4th Avenue from Cherry Way to Stanwix Street
  • Wood Street from Boulevard of the Allies to Forbes Avenue
  • Smithfield Street from Boulevard of the Allies to Forbes Avenue

There will also be some sidewalk restrictions as part of the closures. The 4th Avenue parking garage is open.
