7:40 a.m. update: Lanes back open on 35W at Hwy. 280

That pesky doe that MnDOT and the State Patrol tried to wrangle in was a tough catch, but word is they got the doe the second time around.  Crews have cleared the scene and all lanes are now back open.

The action did create a backlog on westbound Hwy. 36 with slow traffic from Dale Street over to Hwy. 280. That will take a few minutes to clear out.

Southbound 35W continues to sputter. The jamup begins at 95th Avenue in Blaine and things don't loosen a whole lot until Industrial Blvd.  Look for a crash on the 95th Avenue exit and a disabled truck on the right shoulder at County Road 10.  Over all, it's 31 minutes from 95th Avenue to downtown Minneapolis.
