Good morning, commuters!
Friday begins with road construction on northbound 494 at Hwy. 55 in Plymouth and at Bass Lake Road in Maple Grove. That's just a harbinger of things to come as this weekend will offer lots of road work, including the closing of southbound 35W from downtown Minneapolis to 46th Street.
I'll have the complete weekend rundown in a separate blog post a bit later this morning.
The weekend also will bring service disruptions on the Blue Line, but that won't affect the morning or afternoon commute.
We have no delays or problems on the roads at this hour. I’ll be keeping an eye on the roads and rails this morning, reporting any delays or issues — and I will need your help.
If you see or hear about any congestion, delays or problems, e-mail drive@startribune or tweet @stribdrive.
