8:30 a.m. update: Getting better on 169

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: January 10, 2013 - 8:33 AM

Traffic remains tight on northbound Hwy. 169 from Canterbury Road to 494. An earlier car fire is to blame for the congestion. But it's better than it was about 20 minutes ago.

A crash on the right shoulder of northbound 35W at 46th Street is having a minimal effect on traffic. Plan on 10 minutes from the Crosstown to 94.

The fender bender on eastbound 94 at Snelling Avenue has cleared. Up ahead look for some slowing from 35W to the Lowry Hill Tunnel.

The rest of the mainline is moving fairly well. You'll find some company on westbound 494 from Cedar Avenue to Hwy. 100, a 6-minute trek.
