Good morning, commuters!

The rush hour is young and already we are off to a rough start. Black ice has formed on roads making them dangerous as witnessed by the nine spin outs and crashes on the system.

Here is the current list of accidents:

  • The ramp from 85th Avenue to southbound Hwy. 169 is closed.
  • Southbound 35E at Maryland Avenue
  • Eastbound 694 at Lexington Avenue
  • Northbound 35W at 28th Street
  • Westbound 94 at Hwy. 280
  • Southbound 35W at County Road J
  • Southbound Hwy. 100 at Brooklyn Blvd
  • Westbound 494 at Hwy. 100
  • Eastbound 94 at Marion Street

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.
