A big traffic snarl has developed on westbound 694 at Hwy. 252 due to an earlier crash involving a semitrailer truck. The right and left lanes are blocked, but the center lanes are open. Plan on 20 minutes from 35W to Shingle Creek Pkwy.
You will find a little crowding on northbound 35E from W. 7th Street to downtown St. Paul.
Central Avenue is moving slower than normal approaching downtown Minneapolis. Extra traffic due the closure of the intersection of Hennepin and Washington Avenues. People are using the 3rd Avenue Bridge.
