Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: August 27, 2013 - 9:01 AM

No snow or rain to muck up the roads, but this morning was reminiscent of a winter drive to work with a plethora of accidents and major congestion to go with them.

At this hour, the drive on northbound 35W remains tight from Crosstown to downtown Minneapolis, with 20 minutes needed.

Westbound 694 has had its share of wrecks this morning. The latest is at Hwy. 36. Thus, traffic continues to struggle from Stillwater Blvd. over to 35W, a 20 minute drive.

Eastbound 394 is still locked up from 494 to 94, a 21 minute trip.

Look for a stall on southbound Hwy. 280 at Energy Park Drive. It's off on the right shoulder.

Eastbound 94 has congestion from Century Avenue to downtown St. Paul. There is word power is out in the vicinity of Hwy. 61. That has traffic on northbound 61 slower than usual.

Southbound Hwy. 100 is looking better, with just minor delays from 394 down to Crosstown.
