The State Patrol is on the way to a fresh wreck on the ramp from southbound Hwy. 169 to eastbound 694 in Brooklyn Park.
This is not the day to drive on Hwy. 36 heading west. A wreck has been there for 30 minutes and traffic is at a standstill from 35E past the scene at Lexington Avenue.
The ramp from eastbound Hwy. 7 to northbound Hwy. 169 is back open. The intersection-blocking crash has been cleared.
It is still miserable on westbound 494 due to a crash at Portland Avenue. Traffic is barely moving from Hwy. 5 over to Lyndale Avenue.
