A vehicle went off the road and took out a light pole on eastbound 694 near Xerxes Avenue in Brooklyn Center. That's creating a gawker slow down that begins at Brooklyn Blvd.
Good news for Minnetonka drivers. The traffic lights on Hwy. 7 from Hwy. 101 are back on. Traffic is still sluggish in the area.
Northbound I-35 through Lakeville is looking pretty good at this hour. Just plan on a minor set back approaching County Road 50.
