The golden orb is shining once again and causing slow downs for eastbound drivers.
Watch for a fender bender on eastbound 94 approaching 35W in downtown Minneapolis. Traffic slow from Broadway, and also on eastbound 394 from Dunwoody Blvd. to the tunnel. That will take 15 minutes.
A new problem for the south metro is a crash at the intersection of northbound Cedar Avenue at Hwy. 62. The right shoulder is blocked.
On eastbound 694, the left lane is blocked with a wreck near East River Road.
Heavy traffic is making for a slow commute on southbound 35W. It's 22 minutes from Lake Drive to Hwy. 280.
On southbound 35E, it's 15 minutes from 694 to 94.
On southbound 169, it's 30 minutes from 94 down to Hwy. 7.
