Traffic levels are building on northbound I-35 between County Road 2 and County Road 50 where the freeway is reduced to a single lane due to road construction. This is likely to be a busy area as the rush hour rolls on. Currently look for 10-minute trip from County 2 to Crystal Lake Road.
The first crash of the morning comes on westbound 694 at Hwy. 36 in Pine Springs. It's a fender bender on the right shoulder.
