Metro Transit routes 62 and 75 on the south side of the Mississippi River are on running on Robert Street. The routes that run on Wabasha Street are detoured as police investigate a shooting earlier this morning at Plato Blvd. and Wabasha.

Crosstown continues to sputter in spots for eastbound traffic from Shady Oak Road to Penn Avenue. Northbound 35W also is tight from Crosstown to downtown.

Plan on slow traffic on westbound 694 from 10th Street past an earlier crash at White Bear Avenue.

Our other tough spot is 394 in both directions from Hwy. 100 to I-94.  A crash on the westbound side at the Hwy. 100 exits has outbound traffic knotted up Penn to Hwy. 100.
