I-694 in both directions is going to be a slow slog across the northern suburbs. Settle in and be ready for a longer commute.  One ounce of better news is that a crash involving a semitrailer truck at Central Avenue. Westbound traffic is moving a tad better than it was 30 minutes ago.

Look for a fresh spinout on westbound 94 at just past Cretin Avenue. It's blocking the center lane.
