8:20 a.m. update: Big jam on 94 in Maple Grove

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: September 2, 2014 - 8:21 AM

Traffic on northbound 494 and westbound 94 in Maple Grove is moving at a snail's pace. A semitrailer truck rolled over on the ramp from north 494 to east 94 at 4:30 a.m., and authorities shut the ramp down.

Traffic on northbound 494 is being diverted to westbound 94. Many drivers are using Weaver Lake Road to turn around and head back east.  That's created a ramp jam there.  Throw in a fender bender and you've got traffic at a standstill.   Westbound 94 comes to grind just past Hemlock Lane.

Eastbound 94 traffic is jammed from 101st Avenue back down to the Fish Lake Split.

In Richfield, a crash on eastbound Crosstown at Portland Avenue has the ramp from southbound 35W plugged up. Things also are tight on eastbound Crosstown from the 35W curve past the crash on the right shoulder.
