As we can expect, the roads are becoming a bit busy as we hit the heart of the rush hour. You'll find some crowding on mainline routes, but we don't have anything that causing any big delays.

Commuters on southbound 35E will have a brief tie up approaching County Road H2. There we have a vehicle off in the right ditch and another sitting on the right shoulder.  That is adding a few minutes to the drive, but overall it's only 22 minutes from the Forest Lake Split to downtown St. Paul.

Look out for a fender bender on the right shoulder of westbound 394 at Wirth Pkwy.
