8:20 a.m. update: Rain soaked roads slowing commute

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: July 9, 2013 - 8:20 AM

We have one crash on the system at this moment, and that is on northbound Cedar Avenue at Hwy. 13.

Heavy rain falling across the metro is slowing traffic throughout the area, leading to extra time on the roads. Here is a sampler:

A tree is blocking the road at Minnetonka Blvd. and Fairlawn. Look out for debris on roads. Other reports of trees down in the west metro.

Northbound Hwy. 169 from County Road 18 to 494: 17 minutes.

Northbound 35E from County 42 to 494: 15 minutes.

Eastbound 694 from County Road 81 to 35W: 25 minutes.

Westbound 94 from Manning Avenue to 35E: 16 minutes. Ahead, add another 20 from Marion Street to 11th Avenue in Minneapolis.

Southbound 35W from Hwy. 10 to Hennepin Avenue: 18 minutes.
