Keeping tabs on Monday's morning commute

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: January 7, 2013 - 5:16 AM

Good morning commuters.

It's back to school and work for most people today so I'm expecting things to be heavier than they have been over the past couple weeks.

I'll be keeping tabs on the roads and rails this morning and letting you know where you will encounter delays and problems. I could use your help, too.

If you see any congestions, delays, accidents or issues on the roads, send an e-mail to or a tweet to @stribdrive.

Two blocks of southbound Hennepin Avenue are closed, from 1st Street to Washington Avenue. A block of 2nd Street North is also closed, from Hennepin Avenue to 1st Avenue North.

A few Metro Transit routes will still be on detour due to last week's water main break in downtown Minneapolis. They include the following routes:

Routes 4, 6 and 61
Southbound buses are traveling on 1st St., 1st Ave., Washington and Hennepin. 

Route 7
Southbound buses are traveling on 1st St., 3rd Ave., Washington and Hennepin.

Route 11
Southbound buses are traveling on 1st St., 1st Ave., Washington and Nicollet Mall.

Route 12
Southbound buses are traveling on 1st St., 2nd Ave., Washington and Hennepin.
