Traffic is still tied up on eastbound 694 from Hwy. 252 past the scene of a wreck at Lexington Avenue, but at least the carnage has been moved to the right shoulder and all lanes are open.

The other crash working at the moment is on eastbound 494 at Valley View Road.  It's like a parking lot at Flying Cloud Drive and things remain heavy over to Hwy. 100.

Westbound 494 creeps along from Pilot Knob Road over to Hwy. 100. It's atleast 30 minutes to make that trip.

There just is not much relief on northbound Hwy. 169 with 20 minutes needed from County 83 up to 494.

The Crosstown continues to inch along in both directions between Cedar Avenue and Hwy. 169. That is 27 minutes.

I-494, 169 and Hwy. 100 in the west metro are still jammed with southbound drivers needing 40 to 45 minutes to get from I-94 down to the Crosstown.
