Commuters with the option of using the I-394 HOT lane are saving time this morning as the general traffic lanes are plugged up from General Mills Blvd. to downtown Minneapolis. From 494 to 94 is 20 minutes due to a previous wreck on eastbound 94 at 35W.
Eastbound 94 sputters from 57th Avenue past a car off the road at Dowling Avenue, then inches along from Olson Hwy. to Hwy. 280 due to an earlier crash mentioned above, and road work taking out the right lane at Huron Blvd.
