Good morning, commuters!

Here is something we have not had to deal with for the past few weeks: wet roads.

Showers and thunderstorms are rolling through the metro area and that is a good reason to keep the speeds down as rain leaves behind a thin layer of water, oil, and grease which can reduce your traction and cause your car to skid.

We also have a few place where overnight road work is still in progress:

  • Northbound Hwy. 169 at County Road 18 in Shakopee and at 49th Avenue
  • Westbound 494 at 12th Avenue and eastbound 494 at 35W
  • Eastbound 94 at the Minnesota Road Research area near Albertville
  • Northbound 35W at County Road 50.


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.
