The residential streets are treacherous. We have reports of vehicles sliding off the roads in the northern suburbs. We hear a car slid off the road into a power pole on 3rd Avenue at 44th Avenue in northeast Minneapolis.

We have one crash on the metro freeway system. That's on the ramp from westbound 694

On the mainline, here are some travel times:

Northbound Hwy. 169 from County Road 18 to 494 is 16 minutes.

Southbound 35W from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 280 is 14 minutes.

Southbound 35E from County Road J to 694 is 15 minutes. It's 10 minutes from Little Canada Road to 94.

Northbound 35E from County Road 42 to 494 is 15 minutes.

We also have building levels on northbound Cedar Avenue and 35W from County Road 42 to the Minnesota River.
