I-94 is looking good between the downtowns with no significant delays.
That's not the case on 694. A pair of crashes on the left and right shoulders on westbound 694 has traffic snarled. It's 30 minutes from 35W to Shingle Creek Pkwy. On eastbound 94, look for a wreck near Xerxes Avenue.
The Crosstown is congested in both directions from 35W to Hwy. 169. There's a pocket of tight traffic on southbound 35W from Stinson Blvd. to Hennepin Avenue.
Southbound 169 is inching along from Hwy. 55 to the Crosstown. Things are heavy on westbound 494 from Cedar Avenue to Hwy. 100. That is a 12-minute drive.
A spinout has the right shoulder blocked on eastbound 494 at Flying Cloud Drive.
A stalled vehicle is blocking the right shoulder on eastbound 394 at General Mills Blvd.
