We've got a few incidents that are tying up traffic at this hour.

You'll find them on southbound 35W at Hwy. 88. Look for it on the left shoulder. From Lexington Avenue to Hwy. 280 it's about a 20-minute commute.

Things are heavy on eastbound 694 from University Avenue to 35W. There's a crash on the right shoulder at Silver Lake Road.

494 in both directions is quite crowded between Cedar Avenue and Hwy. 212. The worst in on eastbound 494 with a wreck at West Bush Lake Road. Look for a 20-minute drive.

You'll find tight traffic on southbound Hwy. 100 from 394 to the Crosstown. Same is true on Hwy. 169.

Westbound Hwy. 36 is heavy from 35E to Fairview Avenue, and you'll find lots of company on southbound 35W from Hennepin Avenue to downtown Minneapolis.

The drive on northbound 35W from 50th Street to downtown is busy, but managable. Plan on 10 minutes there.
