A semitrailer truck blocking the center lane on westbound 494 at Lyndale is leading to backups as far back as 24th Avenue. Plan on 15 minutes from 34th Avenue to Hwy. 100.

A crash on the ramp from eastbound 394 to downtown Minneapolis is creating a traffic jam on 394. Look for slow traffic at Wirth Pkwy. to 94.

The right shoulder of eastbound 494 is blocked at West Bush Lake Road with a disabled vehicle. Things are heavy from 169 to 100.

That is also impacting traffic on northbound 169. It's 15 minutes from Old Shakopee Road to 494.

Also on 169, things are heavy on southbound 169 from Rockford Road to 394 and northbound from Excelsior Blvd. to 394.

On southbound 35E, a crash at Larpenteur on the right shoulder is leading to 17 minute drive from 694 to 94.

Southbound 35W remains slow from County Road I to Stinson Blvd. That's 22 minutes.
