After a rash on accidents on northbound 35W in south Minneapolis and a few others scattered around the metro, things are quieting down.

The wreck on westbound 94 at Marion Street in downtown St. Paul has cleared, but it's still congested coming in from Hwy. 61. You'll need 10 extra minutes to reach downtown St. Paul.

The wreck on southbound Hwy. 169 at 36th Avenue is gone, and that has allowed traffic to get back to normal speeds. It's only 9 minutes from 94 to 394.

Things are slow on eastbound 394 from 169 to downtown Minneapolis. The slowest traffic is between Winnetka Avenue and Hwy. 100.

Other tight spots include northbound 169 from Old Shakopee Road to 494, southbound 35W from County Road 10 to 694 and westbound 494 from 24th Avenue to Hwy. 100.
