6:25 a.m. update: Water receded on Cedar Avenue

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: June 19, 2014 - 6:30 AM

It almost feels as if we are having a winter re-run with flooding and wet roads slowing the drive. We've also had several spinouts and crashes.

Here are a few of the current trouble spots:
Eastbound 494 at Hardman Avenue in Newport/South St. Paul

Northbound 169 at Hwy. 7 in Minnetonka

Hwy. 5/W. 7th Street near Hwy. 51 in St. Paul

Flooding on Hwy. 280 near Broadway Street.  Water has receded on Cedar Avenue near the Mall of America.

Lost in all the weather-related delays is the fact that southbound 35E is operating with one less lane this morning. Construction is taking out the right lane until October.

So far it appears as if transit is operating without issue.
