Perhaps it's the sun, but whatever the reason eastbound Hwy. 212 is jammed from Hwy. 101 over to Prairie Center Drive in Eden Prairie. Plan on 15 minutes to reach Shady Oak Road. 

The big tie up on westbound 694 now extends back to Silver Lake Road. That's all related to a pair of crashes on the Mississippi River bridge. 

In Newport a three-vehicle crash on the westbound Wakota bridge has westbound 494 traffic stacked up from Bailey Road past Hardman Avenue.

A new wreck on the left shoulder of southbound 35E at County Road J is creating a minor delay. Ahead, things move well all the way into downtown St. Paul.
