After more than an hour, the vehicle stuck in the median on eastbound 494 at East Bush Lake Road has been removed and all lanes are now open.
The Crosstown is jammed in both directions between Cedar Avenue and Hwy. 169.
Northbound Hwy. 169 is quite heavy from Canterbury Road to 494. That's about a 25-minute drive. Look for congestion on southbound Hwy. 169 from Hwy. 55 down to the Crosstown.
The usual slowdown is in place on southbound 35W from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 280. That is about 25 minutes.
Westbound 494 is 18 minutes from Hwy. 61 over to 35E.
Northbound 35W is heavy from the Burnsville Split up to the Minnesota River. It's about 17 minutes to reach the Crosstown.
Westbound Bass Lake Road is closed due to a water main break. Detour is in place at West Broadway Avenue.
