Once out of rehab and back on tour, she struggles to maintain her relationship with her manager husband and battle with a younger girl who's ready to steal her spotlight.

Heigl movie 'One for the Money' halts traffic in Kittanning - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Posted: 01 Sep 2010 04:22 AM PDT

KITTANNING — Filming for a Hollywood movie in Kittanning brought some traffic gridlock along with it.

The Kittanning Citizens Bridge and the town's main business district thoroughfare, Market Street, were shut down Monday evening and all day Tuesday so a film crew could shoot scenes for the Katherine Heigl movie "One for the Money." Things were expected to be back to normal today with moviemakers wrapping up their activities.

With traffic detoured in and out of town in other directions, the resulting jam had motorists waiting for extended periods to get through on side-running streets while outside of town, the ramps for Routes 422/28/66 under the bridge that carries Route 66 over top backed up with delays of up to 30 minutes at times to get in and out of the area.

Market Street traffic and movie scenes moved along well for the most part. Kittanning and neighboring police departments directed traffic at many of the downtown area intersections. Local and film company security officers cleared the way for scenes to be shot in quick time.

"Overall, everybody has been really cooperative," said Kittanning police officer Don Blose. "It's a good experience, they say. Everything seems to be running smoothly. There's been a few traffic delays but they usually don't last too long and we get everybody through."

"We've been trying to get people to exit town either past the courthouse or down by Sheetz," he said.

Kittanning Police Chief Ed Cassesse said he was keeping some streets open for camera-toting production trucks.

"They want traffic held at places," Cassesse said. "It's jammed things up a little, but we try to get everybody through. Once you get one (street) opened, the other one jams up. It's never-ending."

Cassesse said there have been a few unhappy storeowners during the filming.

"That's understandable," he said. "Customers have been shut off. Outside of that everything has been going lovely."

The movie company has shut down things to let emergency vehicles cross the bridge when needed, according to Cassesse.

"That has not been a problem," he said. "Prior arrangements were made."

Cassesse said he was aware that the jam in Kittanning was been pushing traffic onto the Graff Bridge above the Allegheny River between Manor and North Buffalo where there were two accidents and restricted lanes for construction.

"That hurt everything," he said.

Lt. Tom Dubovi, commander of state police in East Franklin, said that with the bridge in Kittanning closed, people are using the routes taking them on the 422/66/28 ramps to go in and out of Kittanning.

"With the merging, it's causing problems," said Dubovi. "You dump all of that traffic from Kittanning there you're going to have problems."

Dubovi said that adding to the extra traffic were lane restrictions for construction on the bridges and two minor accidents in the immediate area involving one with three vehicles and another with four vehicles. State police are working with PennDOT to alleviate the temporary congestion, including updating message boards.

"It caused a backlog," said Dubovi. "We hope to get it all cleared up."

The moviemakers had some complaints directed their way, in particular from town businesses, but motorists, workers at local businesses and the majority of business owners took the inconveniences in stride.

Clark's family Restaurant on Market Street had a "closed at 10 a.m. due to the movie" sign on the door. "Sorry for the inconvenience" and "Think local jobs!" it read.

Rosebud Mining employee Bill Pardini, of Murrysville, said everyone in town that he's talked to is coping for the most part.

"Nobody is saying anything bad," said Pardini. "It's really no big deal. It's great."

However, one woman sitting in traffic at the intersection of Market Street and North Grant Avenue in a vehicle with an out-of-state plate, was heard yelling "get out of town" to the film crew.

Customers of the Beauty Connection on Market Street were able to get to the shop, short of a few late for their appointments and calls asking about parking.

Owner Pam Ridinger wasn't expecting Heigl, who was sitting across the street in a red convertible for a scene, to come in for some styling, although she had some suggestions for her.

"It's been interesting," said Ridinger. "There have been no problems. If it had been Thursday or Friday (that would have been something different)."

Kittanning borough council President Jerry Shuster said the borough approved the closing of Market Street and South Water Street for the movie. PennDOT approved the bridge closing, he said.

"They (movie production company) come back to Kittanning because of the cooperation of borough streets (department), fire department, police, council," said Shuster. "The borough is happy to be chosen. The public relations, we couldn't buy that."

"For every business impacted negatively, there are six or seven businesses that made handsome money — they make it a point to buy goods locally," he said. "People are hired here."

Shuster said the borough meets with the movie company after the shooting to recoup revenues.

"We will be ahead," Shuster said. "The production company pays lost parking and pays police overtime."

"It got some people irritated but by the same token, we were prominently displayed as a community," he said. "Some were upset, challenged by the distractions which were short-lived to put up with, and yes, it was an inconvenience, but the positives outweigh the negatives."
