PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There’s still a few more days of filming for crews working on “The Dark Knight Rises” before things wrap up here in Pittsburgh and the move on to a different city.

The latest round of road closures for Friday, Aug. 19 include Exchange Way from 9th Street to 10th Street, as well as Garrison Place from Penn Avenue to Liberty Avenue.

There will also be intermittent closures throughout the day on Penn Avenue between 9th Street to 10th Street, and intermittent traffic control on Liberty Avenue at Garrison Place.

As usual, there will be sidewalk restrictions and some short delays for pedestrians.

The giant hole crews dug in the middle of Cherry Way in downtown Pittsburgh was put to use during filming on Thursday.

There was an explosion and seconds later the Tumbler was spotted falling into the crater. But that wasn’t the only action people saw.

Catwoman was seen racing down the street on the Batpod, as well as gunfire and snow, too.
