A crash that had been blocking the left lane at the junction of westbound Hwy. 36 and southbound 35W is creating big backups.  Delays extend back to Dale St.

That is adding an extra 15 minutes to the commute.

On 35W, look for brake lights starting at Long Lake Road and from Hwy. 10 to 694. Count on 29 minutes from Lexington Av. to downtown Minneapolis.
