We end the rush hour with congestion on northbound 35W in the vicinity of Cliff Road due to a crash on the right shoulder. The activity has traffic slow from County Road 42.
I-494 in both directions is still heavy between Cedar Avenue and Hwy. 169. Plan on 20 minutes to get through there.
You'll also find pockets of slow traffic on westbound Hwy. 36 between 35E and 35W, northbound 169 from Anderson Lakes Pkwy. to 494, and on the Crosstown in both directions between Hwy. 169 and 28th Avenue.
In St. Paul, traffic bunches up on westbound 94 from Hwy. 61 over to Marion Street. Southbound 35E is tight between Roselawn Avenue and 94.
In the north and west metro, traffic is moving near the posted speeds on 94, 494, 169 and Hwy. 100.
I will be back tomorrow with more live traffic reports. As always, send story idea my way and any traffic related issues you run into to firstname.lastname@example.org, leave a comment here or a tweet @stribdrive.
