Without snow, the Tuesday commute is off to a much better start with dry roads.
But ramps are slick. Currently the ramp from northbound Hwy. 52 to eastbound 494 is closed while tow trucks pull a couple vehilces out of the ditch.
On southbound Hwy. 169, police activity on the right shoulder is causing a gwaker slow down from Bass Lake Road down to 36th Avenue. It's 20 minutes from 94 down to 394.
Eastbound 94 is tad crowded from Boone Avenue to Zane Avenue in Brooklyn Park.
Westbound Hwy. 36 is bunching up from Dale Street to Snelling Avenue. That will cost you 3 to 5 extra minutes.
