7:45 a.m. update: Clogging up on I-494 in Newport

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: August 12, 2014 - 7:47 AM

A fender bender on the right shoulder of westbound 494 at Hwy. 61 along with the usual heavy traffic is making for an unpleasant drive from Bailey Road in Woodbury over to Concord. 

A stall on the right shoulder of eastbound 94 at Huron Blvd. might explain the congestion that extends back to 7th Street in north Minneapolis. That drive is much slower than normal today.

Southbound 35W is still plugged from County Road I past a mishap at County Road E2. Plan on 25 minutes from Lexington Avenue to downtown St. Paul.

Northbound Hwy. 100 is getting bad from 50th Street to I-394. That is due to congestion that is thick from Hwy. 7 to Cedar Lake Road.

Northbound 494 is going sour from Hwy. 212 up to about Minnetonka Blvd.
