From April 27 to 29, the NFL 2017 Draft will take over the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and construction is already underway. As the NFL is putting together their game plan, SEPTA has put together theirs as well.
The unprecedented completely outdoors NFL Draft is a historic first for football and for Philadelphia. A crowd of about 200,000 fans is expected to enjoy activities around the draft. However, the historic first is causing traffic trouble around the art museum.
