For commuters looking to get somewhere fast, I-94 between the downtowns and I-35W are not the routes to take. Both are sluggish due to crashes taking out lanes.

On northbound 35W, a new wreck at Park Avenue to go with one that just cleared at 26th Street has traffic crammed from 50th Street into downtown Minneapolis.

Westbound 94 is well below the posted from downtown St. Paul past a wreck on the left shoulder at Prior Avenue.

Southbound 35W creeps along from Hwy. 280 to downtown Minneapolis. A stall at Hwy. 280 and wreck at 4th Street have traffic bumper to bumper all the way.  That's also impacting the drive on westbound Hwy. 36 from Dale Street to 35W.
