A major backup has developed on westbound 694 in the northeast metro. It's a 21-minute drive from 34th Street to Century Avenue. A crash involving a car and semitrailer truck is blocking a lane in the work zone. Traffic is getting by on the right shoulder.

In Burnsville, a semitrailer truck and a car collided on northbound 35W at Hwy. 13. Look for a jamup starting at the 35W/35E split.

Traffic contiinues to inch along on southbound 35W due to an injury crash at County Road I. The delays begin at Lake Drive. Plan on using 20 minutes coming down from Lake Drive.

You'll run into congestion on southbound 169 from 94 to Hwy. 55. That's an 11-minute drive.

Slow downs also are reported on Central Avenue coming into downtown Minneapolis, and northbound 169 from Anderson Lakes Pkwy. to 494.
