9 a.m. update: Rush hour wrap up

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: February 5, 2014 - 9:01 AM

It was another morning with dry roads and few delays for most commuters. One exception was for drivers on eastbound 394.

A three-vehicle crash around 7:30 a.m. blocked the left and center lanes of 394 for about a half hour, and that led to big delays for commuters. At one time traffic was stacked up to General Mills Blvd. making the trip from 494 to downtown Minneapolis 25 minutes or more.  It cleared around 8:15 a.m. when it was moved to the right shoulder.

The wreck also bogged down traffic on northbound Hwy. 100 from 50th Street up to 394.

In Burnsville, a school bus and a car collided in the intersection of Hwy. 13 and County Road 11 in Burnsville around 7 a.m.. The eastbound lanes were blocked for about an hour and traffic backed up to near Portland Avenue.  Northbound County 11 also is stacked up.  There were conflicting reports if there were injuries.

Currently there are not many problems on the roads. Look for a stall blocking a lane on the Mendota Bridge. It's westbound.

The State Patrol is helping a motorist who slid of eastbound 94 between the Crow River and Hwy. 101 in Rogers. The left lane is closed.
