7:05 a.m. update: Congestion building on 94 in St. Paul

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: July 10, 2013 - 7:06 AM

Motorists on westbound 94 from Manning Avenue and downtown St. Paul can plan on a slower than normal commute. Heavy traffic is creating stop and go conditions, meaning the trip will take 15 to 19 minutes.

On southbound 494, plan on 10 minutes from 94 to Hwy. 55 through Plymouth and Maple Grove.

The crowded conditions are just now forming on 694 through the work zone between Hwy. 252 and East River Road. Allow an extra 5 minutes to get through there.

The ramp from eastbound 94 to southbound 169 has jus opened now that crews have finished cleaning up from a tanker truck that was on fire earlier this morning.

Southbound 35W drivers can plan on a 15-minute drive from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 280.

And a reminder for drivers in the south metro. The McAndrews Road bridge over 35E is now closed. A detour is posted.
