    More than a week after the NFL Draft ended, and about a month after the first traffic impacts of the draft took place, roads around the Philadelphia Museum of Art opened Monday.

    If your commute brings you anywhere near the art museum, Eakins Oval or the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, you know how much the road closures affected drivers.

    At midnight, Spring Garden Street reopened at Pennsylvania Avenue. The right two lanes of Eakins Oval in front of the Art Museum steps also reopened, as did lanes along the parkway, and a southbound lane of Kelly Drive.

    The closures began on April 10.
