As we head into the final stages of the rush hour, you'll find ligher-than-normal levels of traffic on metro area roads. There are a couple of incidents to be aware of.

The ramp from northbound 494 to westbound Hwy. 12 is partially blocked with a crash.

And the right shoulder is blocked with a wreck on southbound 35 just past Hwy. 97 in Forest Lake. There also is a vehicle on the left shoulder.
