Southbound Hwy. 100 has been a nightmare for the past 90 minutes. A wreck that has been blocking the left lane at Benton Avenue has been cleared. In the back up, we have a fender bender involving a bus at 50th Street.
The backup extends back to 57th Avenue in Brooklyn Center. The 13-mile trip from 94 to Crosstown is still more than an hour.
Look for a fresh crash at the intersection of Hwy. 252 and eastbound 94 in Brooklyn Center. Traffic already is thick on southbound 252 coming down from Hwy. 610.
Plan on 20 minutes or more on northbound 35W from Crosstown to downtown Minneapolis. A fender bender resides on the right shoulder at 26th Street.
The right lane is blocked on northbound Hwy. 280 at Energy Park Drive.
In Minneapolis, steer around a stall partially blocking the left lane on eastbound 94 at the southbound 35W exit.
Cedar Avenue is looking better now that a crash near the Mall of America has cleared and the left lane is back open.
