    Drivers in Philadelphia should expect delays on North Broad Street during weekends in August as crews work on the roadway's center median.

    Construction along North Broad Street between Buttonwood Street and Glenwood Avenue will start 7 p.m. Aug. 1 and continue until 5 a.m. Aug. 4, according to the Philadelphia Streets Department. 

    Commuters are not permitted to park in this section during this time period and some lane restrictions will be in place.

    The work, which has already been underway for several weeks, will continue throughout the mont.
