'Batman' film may complicate Downtown, Oakland parking

Makers of the new "Batman" film may want to use a significant number of Pittsburgh parking spaces late this summer, meaning motorists will need superhero levels of patience.
Movie producers have indicated that they'll want to use garage and meter spaces Downtown and meter spaces in Oakland, David Onorato, executive director of the Pittsburgh Parking Authority, told his board Thursday.
He said he'll meet with producers to make arrangements and noted that they'll have to pay for the spaces. He said motorists likely will find the parking situation tighter than usual.
Mr. Onorato also said the Mon Wharf has been closed 30 times this fiscal year -- 10 times in April alone -- because of flooding. That has cost the authority about $108,000 in revenue.
The wharf remains closed today.
