Road Closures In Place For “Batman” Filming Downtown
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.
