Authorities have closed the two left lanes of northbound 35W at Burnsville Pkwy. as they deal with a motorcycle crash.  A reconstruction team has been ordered, and that usually means a fatality.

MnDOT says the lanes will likely be closed for two hour.  One lane is still open for traffic.  Look for a logjam in the area. The backup begins at Crystal Lake Road at the moment.

Over in St. Paul, things are at a near standstill on northbound 35E due to a crash at Shepard Road. The slow down begins at Hwy. 110.

And a fresh crash is impacting traffic on westbound 494 at Penn Avenue.
