7:30 a.m. update: Miserable on the roads

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: December 9, 2013 - 7:32 AM

It's another white-knuckle drive for commuters on southbound 494 out of Maple Grove. Traffic is at a standstill from the Fish Lake Interchange down to 394. A crash with a vehicle in the center median is part of the reason for the tie-up.

It's not much better on eastbound 94 from Manning Avenue over to Hwy. 280. That drive is at 30 minutes.

The 494 strip in Bloomington is stop and go in both directions from Hwy. 169 to Cedar Avenue. That is a 20 minute drive.

There's not much movement on southbound Hwy. 100 from I-94 to 394.  Northbound plugs up from Minnetonka Blvd. to 394.

Both southbound 169 and Hwy. 100 from 94 to Hwy. 7 are crawling along. Plan on doubling the normal commute time.

Northbound 169, Cedar Avenue and 35 are clogged from the Minnesota River bridge up to 494.
