The only explanation for the slow down on northbound 35E from Lone Oak Road to Hwy. 110 has to be the disabled MVTA bus on the ramp to I-494. The bus is not blocking traffic, but commuters must be slowing to rubberneck.

Look for the usual congestion on eastbound 94 from Olson Hwy. over to Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.

Speeds are beginning to drop on southbound Hwy. 169, Hwy. 100 and I-494 between I-94 and I-394, mostly due to increasing traffic volumes.

Up in Shoreview, motorists are doing the zipper merge to get around a right-lane blocking crash on eastbound Hwy. 10 at County Road J. That's just before the I-35W interchange.  On southbound 35W, expect lots of company from Lake Drive to County Road E2.
