POPE UPDATE!!! In latest pope update news, we’re keeping our Saturday and Sunday classes! As you can see from the pic below, you will be able to walk across the Chestnut and Walnut bridges and down to the Banks, and should also still be able to walk across Spruce and Locust. Give yourself a little extra time, and for goodness sake, don’t drive! If you usually bring a bus or the subway, check for special schedules. Bikes should still be fine, but you may need to get off of them and walk at certain points.

You can go to the website https://www.phillypopemap.com for interactive maps re: closures, transportation, parking, and more.
