Good morning, commuters!

The newest lane closure is on southbound 494 at Carlson Pkwy. where overnight road work is scheduled to continue until 7 a.m.

A reminder that southbound Hwy. 169 is closed at Bren Road. The detour takes drivers along westbound 394 to southbound 494.

Over in White Bear Lake, Hwy. 61 is a single lane through the downtown area roughly between Hwy. 96 and White Bear Avenue.  In Hastings, Hwy. 61 also is single lane from Hwy. 10 down to 8th 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.
