Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: December 9, 2013 - 7:24 AM

It's near gridlock in some places and in others traffic is moving at a snail's pace. The combination of snow-packed and icy roads along with the usual congestion had commuters spending double and triple the normal time on the roads.

Metro Transit says buses are 4 minutes late or less on 25 percent of its routes.

Here are some of the crashes snarling traffic at this hour:

Westbound 494 at Hwy. 169

Northbound Cedar Avenue at 35E

Westbound Crosstown at Cedar Avenue. Eastbound there is a crash at Penn Avenue

Southbound 494 at Hwy. 55. Major backup begins at Bass Lake Road.

Westbound 94 at Franklin Avenue.
