We might be starting to see the impact of the latest Hwy. 169 closure. Traffic that normally uses Hwy. 169 may be using southbound 494, which is heavy from the Fish Lake Interchange to 394. That is a 20-minute trip.
Northbound Hwy. 61 remains jammed through Newport. Look for lots of emergency vehicles on the scene of a multi-vehicle crash on the right shoulder and right lane just prior to I-494.
