A crash on southbound 35E at County Road J has traffic coming to a stop at 64th Street, but once you get past that, it's actually a nice drive into downtown St. Paul. Things in the work zone are holding up pretty well. That's Little Canada Road to Maryland Avenue.

Southbound 35W remains tight from 95th Avenue to 694 due to an earlier accident at County I.

Congestion is the worst in the south metro on Hwy. 169 over the Bloomington Ferry Bridge and northbound 35W over the Minnesota River. Many drivers are using those routes to get around the flood-related closures of Hwy. 41 and 101.
