Made in America cleanup begins

The bands are packed up and the musicians are back on the road, after thousands descended to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway for the Made in America concert. The cleanup to restore normalcy to the area had teams working around-the-clock. 

Sanitation trucks and crews spent their Labor Day roving around the Ben Franklin Parkway, picking up bottles, wrappers, cans and other trash. 

The stage was still being dismantled on Monday, so commuters can expect for roads in the area to slowly open. Officials will reopen the outer lanes of the Parkway first, then the inner lanes, as crews continue to tear down the stage. 


They expect things to be back to normal by rush hour on Tuesday.  

Stolen phones and underage drinking were the two largest issues authorities dealt with at the two-day festival. 

Philadelphia police say dozens of smartphones were stolen from concertgoers back pockets over the weekend. 

Authorities recovered 46 of them. Anyone who lost a phone should contact Central Detectives, because they may have it.
