8:25 a.m. update: Slick conditions lead to spin outs

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: January 10, 2014 - 8:27 AM

There is just enough moisture in the air and some of that is freezing on the pavement. Word is that westbound 94 is slippery from the Hudson Bridge to 694 through Woodbury and Afton.  That is contributing to the slowness making the trip into downtown St. Paul up to 25 minutes.

In Woodbury, look for a vehicle that slid into the median on southbound 494 at Lake Road. To the north, it's a crash blocking the left lane at Hwy. 5.

Eastbound 394 is jammed from General Mills Blvd. to downtown Minneapolis largely because the gates to the carpool lane are not working.  Add to that a crash in the left lane on the exit to County 73.

Look for a stall blocking the exit from southbound 35E to westbound Hwy. 36 in Maplewood.
