All crashes on metro area highways and freeways have cleared. Pockets of heavy traffic do remain.

You'll find the heaviest traffic on southbound 494 from the Fish Lake interchange to 394.

Things are looking better on northbound 35W and Cedar Avenue in the south metro as congestion has loosened.

Speeds are round 30 to 35 miles per hour on Hwy. 100 in both directions from 394 to 494, so plan on a few extra minutes there.

Minor slowdowns are working in the work zone on 694 from Hwy. 61 to Stillwater Blvd., and on northbound 35W from 46th Street to downtown Minneapolis.
