The morning commute has not produced many crashes, but the few we've had have created havoc. Commuters on eastbound 94 in the northwest suburbs are still feeling the effects of a semitrailer truck crash just around 6 a.m. That wreck has cleared, but traffic jams back at County 37 in Albertville and is bumper to bumper to the Fish Lake Split.
A car crash and fire taking out two southbound lanes of 35W at 102nd Street in Bloomington is impacting traffic in both directions. Northbound drivers are slowing to peek over the wall, and that has traffic creeping along from Crystal Lake Road up to 94th Street. It's a 30- to 35-minute trek to Minneapolis.
Southbound 35E is crash free, but traffic loses steam near County J and again from Hwy. 36 into downtown St. Paul.
