Another morning with ideal weather conditions, but it was still an ugly drive for many commuters. Several crashes, especially during the latter stages of the rush hour, made for an aggravating drive in the north and west metro.
Currently the big headache is on eastbound 394 at Xenia Avenue. The State Patrol has two lanes blocked as they sort out a four-vehicle crash. Motorists are getting by in the carpool lane.
Good news for southbound 94 drivers. That stalled school bus at 7th Street has been towed away. Traffic is moving once again.
Our other hot spot is on westbound Hwy. 610 at Noble Pkwy. Authorities are responding to a rollover crash.
We have no wrecks on 694 in the north metro, but the construction between Hwy. 252 and Hwy. 10 is enough to slow traffic in each direction. The slowest is between Hwy. 10 and Silver Lake Road. Westbound 694 at 35W is slow due to a stalled vehicle in the left lane.
A new crash on southbound 35E at Little Canada Road is off to the right shoulder.
The Crosstown has pockets of congestion, but things are looking better between Cedar Avenue and France Avenue.
