WIth no weather affecting traffic and few crashes, it's been a good day for commuters.
There really isn't a reason traffic should make you late for work unless you are on westbound 94. It's a 30--minute drive from 694 over to Hwy. 280.
The drive on southbound 35W is also 30 minutes from Hwy. 10 to Hennepin Avenue.
Things are looking much better on 94 and 694 in the north metro now that a crash on eastbound 94 at Shingle Creek Pkwy. has cleared.
For the most part, things are moving well out there. Look for tight traffic on westbound 494 from Cedar Avenue to Hwy. 100, northbound 35E from 494 to downtown St. Paul, and southbound 494 from 94 to 394.
