Traffic is struggling on the Bloomington Strip in both directions. Westbound 494 is packed from 24th Avenue to Hwy. 100. There also is a wreck at 24th Avenue.
Eastbound 494 is tight from East Bush Lake Road over to 35W.
In Minneapolis, commuters on 35W will find a few snags. Northbound drivers will find a crash on the right shoulder at 35th Street. Southbound drivers will find a wreck with a car in the center median at Johnson Street.
Looks like the car fire on northbound Hwy. 169 at Anderson Lakes Pkwy. is out. But the right lane is still blocked. Delays begin at Hwy. 13.
