As authorities continue to deal with a rollover crash on Hwy. 212 at Hwy. 101, many drivers are opting to scoot up to Hwy. 5.
The result is that eastbound Hwy. 5 is plugged up from Hwy. 41 over to Prairie Center Drive. It is still moving faster than Hwy. 212 east of Hwy. 101. If you stay on 212, once you get past the crash, things flow smoothly over 494.
A roll over crash on eastbound Hwy. 212 at Hwy. 101 has the right lane blocked, and traffic is now stacked up to Audubon Road. Many drivers are heading north on Hwy. 41 to Hwy. 5, so expect heavier levels of traffic on both of those routes.
In Woodbury, a semitrailer truck is blocking in the collection lane at the intersection of eastbound 94 at 494.
Look for the second crash of the morning at westbound 494 at Hwy. 212. Sounds like it's very icy in that area, so use caution.
