Abysmal might be the best way to sum up travel on the roads this morning. In many places things have not loosened a bit, even though we are in the final stages of the morning rush.

Trouble spots continue to be on northbound 35E from County Road 42 to W. 7th Street in St. Paul. That's still up to 2 hours.

Not much better on northbound 35W from Crystal Lake Road to downtown Minneapolis. Northbound Cedar is moving a bit better. Still, it's 30 minutes from McAndrews Road to the Crosstown.

The ramp from westbound Hwy. 36 to Dale Street remains closed as crew clean up a spill from a leaking tanker truck.

Watch for crashes on westbound 494 at Prairie Center Drive. 

The right shoulder is blocked on eastbound 694 at Century Avenue.

There is a spinout blocking the left lane on southbound 35 at 195th Street.

Westbound 94 from Woodbury to Minneapolis is more than an hour.

Southbound Hwy. 100 is still an hour from 94 to Crosstown. Southbound 494 is 45 minutes from 94 to Hwy. 7.
