Traffic is not likely to improve for some time as icy conditions persist. Trucks and some vehicles can't get up ramps and inclines.
Here are current closures:
- Northbound 35W at Johnson Street. Traffic diverted to New Brighton Blvd. exit.
- Westbound 394 at Dunwoody. Time to check out Olson Memorial Hwy.
- Eastbound 694 has 2 lanes closed at University Avenue. Traffic jams at Hwy. 100. Not many good alternates for this one. Westbound has trouble at Silver Lake Road.
- Eastbound Hwy. 212 at Mitchell Road has two lanes blocked in Eden Prairie
At last count, we have 22 accidents on the system. Take it easy out there
