7:50 a.m. update: Gridlock developing on 35W in south Minneapolis

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: November 26, 2014 - 7:51 AM

Traffic is coming to a grind on southbound 35W at 46th Street in south Minneapolis. A spin out and crash ahead at 60th Street is to blame.  Ahead, look for a spin out on the westbound Crosstown at Lyndale Avenue.

The Eastbound Crosstown is gummed up approaching a crash at Valley View Road in Edina. This was reported as a rollover.

Roads have turned treacherous so slow down.

Look for a stall blocking the right lane on southbound Hwy. 280 at Broadway Street

6:45 a.m. update: Clear on Hwy. 169 in south metro

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: November 26, 2014 - 6:45 AM

MnDOT says the series of crashes on northbound Hwy. 169 between Canterbury Road and the Bloomington Ferry Bridge has cleared.  A slow slog continues through Shakopee and Bloomington, and the snow is not helping traffic recover.

Elsewhere crashes are popping up as road conditions sour. The latest is a spin out blocking a lane on the westbound 494 bridge over the Mississippi River bridge in Eagan.

Other incidents causing delays include:

Road work on eastbound 94 at Huron Blvd. in downtown Minneapolis.

A crash on the right shoulder of southbound 35W at Burnsville Pkwy.

A crash on the right shoulder of southbound 35W at County Road C in Roseville.

A stall is blocking a lane on westbound 494 at Hwy. 212 in Eden Prairie.
