Low traffic volumes and great road conditions led to free flowing conditions for Friday's morning rush hour. Only a handful of crashes kept traffic moving, too.

A crash on northbound Hwy. 169 at Anderson Lakes Pkwy. did create some delays for commuters heading into town from Shakopee and Bloomington. The fender bender just before 8 a.m. tied up traffic from Hwy. 101 up to 494. That wreck is still residing on the right shoulder.

In St. Paul, a maintenance project on the Cayuga Bridge has the left lane of northbound 35E closed until 3 p.m. Friday. That created a minor snag for commuters heading out of downtown St. Paul and a intermittent ramp jams for those accessing 35E from I-94.

A reminder that the Warner Road bridge over Hwy. 61 will be closed Saturday and Sunday, so look for detours in the immediate area.

Monday could be another easy commute as many people will be off for the holiday. Parking meters in downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis will be free.

That's it for today. I'll be here Monday with more live traffic reports. As always, questions and comments on Twin Cities traffic are welcome at drive@startribune.com.
