A wreck on northbound 35 at Crystal Lake Road is slowing traffic beginning at 162nd Street. Once you pass by, things pick up speed. Aside from some minor congestion from Hwy. 13 to the Minnesota River, things are moving swiftly all the way to downtown Minneapolis.
Things are not moving so well on southbound 169 in Brooklyn Park. The traffic lights are not cycling properly, and that has traffic snarled back to about 114th Avenue. Expect a few delays on westbound 610 as part of the back up. A wreck is on the right shoulder of 610 at Hwy. 169.
A crash on eastbound 694 near 252 is slowing things. The biggest delays are on the westbound side as people slow down to look.
The drive on southbound 35W from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 36 is running at about 17 minutes. That's a big improvment from a half hour ago.
Crews have picked up the roadkill on westbound 94 at Riverside Avenue. It's a smooth drive all along 94 between the downtowns in both directions.
