An ambulance is on the scene of a crash on the ramp leading from northbound 94 to westbound 94/694. The State Patrol has shut down the ramp. Traffic is being detoured via northbound 252 or eastbound 694.

That's been a tough area in the past hour. We've had at least three accidents on 94 and 694, including one that's in the final stages of clearing on southbound 94 at 57th Avenue.

The westbound lanes of 694 are creeping along. It's 27 minutes from 35W to Hwy. 169. Not quite as bad heading east, but you'll hit the brakes starting at Xerxes Avenue.

Traffic continues to be tight on westbound 36 from 35E to Hwy. 280, Crosstown in both directions between 28th Avenue and Hwy. 100, and southbound 169 from 36th Avenue to Hwy. 7.
