At long last, the crash that has created a major backup on westbound 94 in the east metro has cleared. The wreck at County Road 21 bad been blocking the left lane and traffic was jammed back to Carmichael Road in Hudson.

Things are still tight, but with all lanes open, things should start to recover in the next few minutes.

Elsewhere, look for nose to nose conditions on northbound Hwy. 100. It's up to 20 minutes from 494 up to Hwy. 100.

A crash on the ramp from Riverside Avenue to westbound 94 has traffic on side streets in the area locked up. Plan on a few extra minutes traveling in the area of Augsburg College.

Northbound 35W is running foul from Crosstown to downtown Minneapolis. That is 15 minutes.

And watch out for a car fire on eastbound Hwy. 10 near 35W.
