    Monday, Sept. 3:

    • Entire event area (Eakins Oval and Benjamin Franklin Parkway) will be closed to vehicular traffic to facilitate breakdown of event equipment.
    • Traffic patterns are expected to return to normal late Monday night or early Tuesday morning, in time for Tuesday morning rush hour between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m.

    SEPTA Special Service Plans:

    • Extra service will be available on subways, trolleys and Norristown High-Speed Line.
    • For those who want to drive into the city, remote parking is available at the Mann Music Center with shuttle bus service to the concert.
    • SEPTA urges Regional Rail riders to take advantage of these extra transit services.
       

     "A subway train will be available every 5 minutes versus a Regional Rail train every hour. Best bet, travel to any one of our transportation centers and ride the Market-Frankford or Broad Street Line into Center City," a SEPTA spokesperson told NBC10.
