Batman Filming to Close Streets Downtown

Crews filming the third movie of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy have shot in Lawrenceville, Heinz Field, and other locations already, but they'll probably cause the most pressing traffic closures when they film Downtown from Tuesday night to Sunday.

Dawn Keezer of the Pittsburgh Film Office says several major routes, like Smithfield Street and Oliver Avenue, will close temporarily on various days during that time period. Sidewalks and curbsides will sometimes be off-limits as well.

Keezer says all Downtown shops will remain open, and visitors can still reach their destinations, although travel time may increase.

A full list of closures can be found at the Pittsburgh Film Office website.
