The rush hour started out blazing with a car fire on northbound 35W at 95th Avenue in Blaine. That is been extinguished, but now as traffic volumes start to pickup, so is other activity.
The scarry thing is a vehicle reported to be traveling the wrong way on eastbound 694 in the area of Silver Lake Road in New Brighton.
Look out for black ice. A big pile up has the ramp from County Road 81 to southbound Hwy. 169 closed.
A fender bender is off on the shoulder of southbound 35E at Little Canada Road.
Two stalls also hampering the drive. They are on southbound 35W at County Road H and on westbound Crosstown near Hwy. 100 in Edina.
