Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: August 13, 2014 - 7:01 AM

No crashes on the system, but we do have a few choke points that are adding time to the drive. You'll find bumper to bumper conditions on southbound 35W from Lexington Avenue down to 694 and on westbound 94 from White Bear Avenue into downtown St. Paul.

Northbound 494 jams at Hwy. 55 and remains tight past the work zone at 49th Avenue. MnDOT is in the process of picking up the cones that have the right lane blocked.

Look for sluggish conditions on eastbound 94 around the Crow River and from 95th Avenue down to the Fish Lake Split.

In the south metro, look for spurts of slow traffic on northbound 35W from Burnsville Pkwy. up to 94th Street.
