We still have two incidents that are snarling traffic, but overall, things are improving.

The trouble spots include southbound 35E at Maryland Avenue where a crash involving three vehicles has just cleared. Traffic is tight in the area, but it's beginning to loosen just a bit. Plan on an 8-minute trek from Hwy. 36 to 94.

In Brooklyn Park, the worst is on southbound 169 at 93rd Avenue where traffic lights are malfunctioning. The backup extends up to 114th Avenue. A wreck also is blocking the right shoulder on westbound 610 at Hwy. 169.

Better news for southbound 35W drivers. All crashes have cleared and travel times are dropping. Still, it's 16 minutes from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 36.
