The roads are a mess.   Scores of spinouts and crashes litter the highways and freeways, leading to long, long commutes.

Here are some of the issues at this hour:

Right lane blocked on westbound Hwy. 55 at Hwy. 110.

Westbound 94 at Hwy. 280; word a pedestrian was hit there.

Northbound 35E at Hwy. 36, a vehicle is facing the wrong direction.  Look for a crash at Maryland Avenue.

Westbound 494 at Nicollet Avenue. There also is one at West Bush Lake Road.
