7:10 a.m. update: Foggy conditions bog down I-94 commute

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: April 25, 2014 - 7:12 AM

Patches of fog along westbound I-94 from the Hudson Bridge to McKnight Road is causing enough visiblity problems that speeds are below the posted.  West of 694, the ususally congestions kicks in, so allow 20 minutes from Manning Avenue to downtown St. Paul.

The trouble spot continues to be on westbound Hwy. 55. The highway is shut down at Lexington Avenue due to a fatal crash ahead at Northland Drive.  To avoid the tie up, get off on  Dodd Road and go up to 494, or get off on Lone Oak Road and go west to 35E.

Southbound 35W is moving fantastic with no hiccups between the Forest Lake Split and downtown Minneapolis. That's about 25 minutes.

In the south metro, you'll run into a minor slow down on northbound Hwy. 169 crossing the Bloomington Ferry Bridge, but it will cost you only a couple extra minutes.

West metro routes: No problems or delays.
