Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: June 23, 2014 - 8:51 AM

Very slowly, but delays are starting to recede on northbound Hwy. 169 and 35W in the south metro. Now if the water would do the same.

Travel time on northbound 35W from the Burnsville Split to downtown Minneapolis has dropped under 30 minutes, but things do remain tight from the split across the Minnesota River bridge.

Northbound 169 has a pocket of resistance from Hwy. 101 to Anderson Lakes Pkwy., but total trip time from Canterbury Road to 494 is now under 20 minutes.

Northbound Hwy. 61 in St. Paul is looking better as a crash on the ramp to westbound 94 has cleared. Reminder that Warner Road from Hwy. 61 along the Mississippi River is closed due to flooding.

Minor delays can be expected on westbound 494 and Crosstown from Cedar to Hwy. 100. That is 11 to 13 minutes on both routes.

Southbound 494 is 20 minutes from the Fish Lake Split to Crosstown with sporadic pockets of congestion from Hwy. 55 to Crosstown.
