7:45 a.m. update: Stagnation on Hwy. 100

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: March 31, 2015 - 7:45 AM

It was bound to happen, southbound Hwy. 100 is barely moving from I-394 down to Excelsior Blvd while northbound sputters from Hwy. 7 up to Minnetonka Blvd.  This is all due to the construction zone that has the highway reduced to two lanes in each direction.

Over in Lake Elmo, look out for a two-car crash on Manning Avenue north of I-94.

A traffic jam is starting to form on southbound Hwy. 100. It's bumper to bumper from Cedar Lake Road through the work zone down to 36th Street.  Northbound does not seem to have the same issues, but do expect to tap the brakes from Execlsior Blvd. up to Barry Street.
