The big traffic crush on westbound 94 heading into downtown St. Paul has loosened and drivers can get from 694 to 35E in just about 10 minutes. Add about 10 minutes to get to downtown Minneapolis. You will encounter a squeeze from Riverside Avenue to 35W.
Southbound 35W continues to be plugged up from Lake Drive to 694. Speeds do improve as you get south of 694.
One crash on the system, and that is on southbound 494 at Bass Lake Road. Traffic is moving just fine past the scene and it's only 13 minutes from the scene to Hwy. 7.
Northbound 35E is tight from 494 up to Hwy. 13, but traffic picks up the pace north of Hwy. 13.
