The crash that had been blocking the left lane on westbound 494 at Nicollet Avenue has been pushed to the right shoulder, so all lanes are open.
The residual backup remains, with traffic creeping along from 24th Avenue over to 35W. Plan on 15 minutes to make that trip.
An ambulance and a two truck is on scene of the left-lane blocking crash on 694 at Hwy. 252. Traffic is inching along from Silver Lake Road past the scene. Plan on an extra 10 minutes.
Northbound Hwy. 169 is 11 minutes from County Road 18 up to 494.
On eastbound 394, look for pockets of slow traffic from hwy. 169 over to 94. That is about 12 minutes.
