It's near gridlock in some places and in others traffic is moving at a snail's pace. The combination of snow-packed and icy roads along with the usual congestion had commuters spending double and triple the normal time on the roads.
Metro Transit says buses are 4 minutes late or less on 25 percent of its routes.
Here are some of the crashes snarling traffic at this hour:
Westbound 494 at Hwy. 169
Northbound Cedar Avenue at 35E
Westbound Crosstown at Cedar Avenue. Eastbound there is a crash at Penn Avenue
Southbound 494 at Hwy. 55. Major backup begins at Bass Lake Road.
Westbound 94 at Franklin Avenue.
