SKYFOX flew over the scene Tuesday.

The Ben Franklin Bridge has reopened after being closed due to protests in Philadelphia. However, all westbound traffic continues to be diverted to 95 N/S until further notice.

Protests on Tuesday stayed peaceful in contrast to prior days where riots led to looting and vandalism in the city. SKYFOX was over the group marching in Center City near city hall Tuesday as people marched they chanted the name of George Floyd. 

The city of Philadelphia will implement a mandatory city-wide curfew for the fourth day in a row Tuesday. After the curfew went into effect at 6 p.m. the last several days, Tuesday’s curfew will begin at 8:30 p.m. The city says the extension is intended to allow residents time to vote and return home before curfew.
