7:10 a.m. update: Crash brings delays on Hwy. 36

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: January 26, 2015 - 7:10 AM

The first significant delay of the morning is developing on westbound  Hwy. 36 in Roseville. A fender bender on the right at Hamline Avenue has traffic jammed starting at Dale Street. Things do remain heavy from Hamline over to 35W.

Up in the Elk River-Otsego area, look out for a stall on southbound Hwy. 101 in the vicinity of County Road 42.
