Roads are wet and that's leading to major congestion on several metro highways.
It's 50 minutes on northbound 169 from County Road to Valley View Road. A new configuration at 169 and 494 is adding to the congestion in the area.
Residual delays due to an earlier accident is snarling traffic on westbound 694 from Rice Street to 35W. That is a 13 minute drive.
Westbound I-94 is packed. Plan on 25 minutes from Hudson Road to Hwy. 280.
It's 30 minutes on southbound 35W from Hwy. 10 to Stinson Blvd.
A crash on southbound 35E at Maryland Avenue is leading to a 23-minute drive from Hwy. 36 to 94, 33 from Ash Street.
It's stop and go on eastbound 94 from Brockton Lane to 494 in Maple Grove.
A Metro Transit bus is stalled on the right shoulder of southbound 94 at Lowry Avenue in Minneapolis.
