Traffic is not moving fast on southbound 35W from Lake Drive to 694. The usual congestion is in place. Plan on 21 minutes to reach Hwy. 280.
Look for pockets of slow and go traffic on southbound 35E from Ash Street down to I-694. Ahead prepare to tap the brakes from Hwy. 36 down to University Avenue.
It's busy on northbound I-35 from County Road 2 up to County Road 50 due to the single lane configuration due to road work. Things thin out through Bloomington and Burnsville.
