Motorists will find building levels of traffic on I-494 through Bloomington, but no big delays yet. The heaviest traffic is westbound from Lyndale to Hwy. 100 while eastbound starts to slow from France Avenue to 35W. Plan on about 10 minutes through there in either direction.
On southbound 35W, things are filling in from Hwy. 10 to 694. Plan on 11 minutes to reach Hwy. 280.
Commuters will need only a couple extra minutes to get through the work zone on 694 between Hwy. 252 and Central Avenue.
The drive along 494 in either direction through Plymouth and Maple Grove is looking good.
No problems on northbound 169, 35W or Cedar Avenue in the south metro.
Woodbury drivers will find smooth sailing on 494, and even on 94 heading into St. Paul.
