From a source that wishes to remain un-identified comes the below pictures that show preparation to transform the site into part of a Chinese city. In addition to the pictures, the person provided some details about the shoot that will take place in the first week of June.
- The east side of the site is being re-developed so most of the shooting will take place on the west side.
- A new concept car (possible Transformer?) not used in the first movie will be used there
- Two Blackhawk helicopters will be used
- The area will be patrolled by the site security and Bethlehem City Police who will also and close streets for the shoot.
- Update: A car hauler was seen with 2 Saturns and 5 Chinese styled cop cars (unknown make and model) with Chinese lettering on them.
- Update 2: In addition to the below pics, more pics are available that show one of the Chinese police cars and additional signage.
- Update 3: Production pics now online showing more angles as prep for night shoot later that day.
For the pictures, some just show what the site looks like from a street level and how it might be useful to appear as a city. You can also see that Chinese word has been added to the top of one building (says "Exit/Entrance" or "Import/Export") and painted on the street ("Loading Dock") in another.

The photos have not been watermarked as the freeware I found just distorts them so if other sites use them please reference this site as the source.
Thank you for the information and pictures!
UPDATE: Thanks to Bryan and other site readers for the translation of the signs.
