7:05 a.m. update: Not too shabby on the roads

The drive to work has not been a horrific as forecast, but there are still some issues on the roads.

Look for spinouts caused by scattered slick spots. One of the toughest spots has been on the ramp from eastbound Crosstown to southbound Hwy. 100. We've had two spinouts there this morning. A tow is rescuing a driver who landed in the median.

Westbound 494 is jammed from Hwy. 169 to Hwy. 100 due to a left lane blocking crash at East Bush Lake Road. Give yourself 15 minutes.

Westbound Hwy. 212 is tight from Dell Road over to 494. That is about 10 minutes.

Southbound 35W is bumper to bumper from 95th Avenue down to Hwy. 280.  Plan on 21 minutes.

In the south metro, northbound 35E is running between 20 and 30 miles per hour from Yankee Doodle Road to 494 according to one reader.

Westbound Crosstown is about 12 minutes from 494 to 35W.

Southbound 169 is running at about 24 minutes from 94 to Crosstown.
