Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: July 31, 2014 - 7:00 AM

Drive times are starting to creep up on westbound 94 from Woodbury into St. Paul as we move into the heart of the rush hour.

The one really slow spot is on southbound 35W from 95th Avenue past a crash on the right shoulder at County Road 10 in Mounds View/Shoreview.

We also have a minor slow down on northbound 35W near 42nd Street where a motroist changing a tire is off on the emergency stopping pad.

South metro routes are still moving at a fine clip, as are those in the west metro.

Metro Transit tells the Drive that the Northstar 6:21 a.m. departure from Big Lake to Minneapolis en-route from Ramsey Station delayed 20 minutes due to freight traffic
