Commuters in the south metro are seeing good roads without any crashes or delays for the most part. That's not the case in the north metro.
In Brooklyn Park, the traffic lights on southbound 169 at 93rd Avenue are not cycling correctly, and that is creating a traffic jam beginning at 109th Avenue. Plan on 11 minutes to reach 694.
Nearby on westbound 610, look for a wreck on the right shoulder near Winnetka Avenue with slowdowns beginning at West Broadway.
On southbound 35W, the crashes are gone but big delays remain. It's 23 minutes from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 280.
In St. Paul, a fender bender on the right shoulder of southbound 35E at Maryland Avenue has traffic quite slow coming down from Little Canada Road.
It's quite busy on northbound 169 from Anderson Lakes Pkwy. to 494. That is a 9-minute drive.
