Delays abound for commuters on southbound 35W from 95th Avenue in Blaine into downtown Minneapolis. The tightest conditions are north of 694.

The usual slow down on westbound 94 from McKnight Road to 35E are in place through St. Paul. 

In the south metro, northbound 35W has spurts of free flowing traffic followed by pockets of nose to nose conditions

For a nice change, northbound 169 is flowing fast from Canterbury Road up to 494.

Northstar trains are single tracking between Elk River and Ramsey. That's led to delays all morning. The fifth trip will depart Big Lake 10 minutes late.
