7:45 a.m. update: Crashes, road work snarling traffic

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: August 5, 2014 - 7:47 AM

After a very quiet start, the morning rush has become problematic for commuters on I-94 and I-35E and I-35W.

Traffic is a near standstill on northbound 35W from Hwy. 13 past a crash that has been moved to the right shoulder at 98t Street.  Look for some debris in the center and right lanes.

Road work from Huron Blvd. to Hwy. 280 an a crash at Franklin Avenue has traffic cramming up on eastbound 94 at Portland Avenue in Minneapolis.

Southbound 35E is hampered by a crash that's actually on the northbound side at County Road E. The gawkers are creating a big jam that goes back to County Road H2 through White Bear Lake.

Northbound Hwy. 10/61 is slower than usual from Lower Afton Road up to 94. That's likely due to the slow going traffic on eastbound 94 from White Bear Avenue into downtown St. Paul.  Plan on 22 minutes from Manning Avenue to 35E if you are on westbound 94.
