One crash can have a major effect on traffic. Drivers on westbound Hwy. 36 will attest to that. An earlier crash on southbound 35W at Hennepin led to a big traffic jam and that continues to persist.
The drive from English Street to Fairview Avenue is about 25 minutes. Then it's another 17 minutes from Hwy. 280 to Hennepin Avenue.
On southbound 35W, it's 25 minutes from Hwy. 10 to Hiawatha Avenue. Look for a vehicle off to the right median at Hiawatha.
Eastbound 394 is sluggish from Hwy. 169 to Hwy. 100. Add a couple minutes to the drive.
The drive on westbound 94 from 35E to Riverside Avenue will take about 13 minutes.
For some good news, the crossing arms at Sunfish Lake and Ramsey boulevards are now operating correctly. They had been stuck in the down position for about an hour.
