- A crash on the right shoulder of westbound 494 at Portland Avenue has traffic slow in the immediate area. We also have stall on the left shoulder at Cedar Avenue.
- Northbound Cedar Avenue remains closed at 42nd Street due to a crash. Metro Transit bus route 14 is on detour. See earlier post for details.
- I-694 both directions through the work zone from Hwy. 100 to Central Avenue.
- Northbound 35W from 46th Street to downtown Minneapolis. That is still 15 minutes.
- Eastbound Hwy. 55 approaching South Shore Drive due to malfunctioning traffic lights.
