Maybe people slept in today because all of a sudden traffic is heavy duty in many spots. This after a very light early morning rush hour.
Here is where you will encounter delays:
Southbound Hwy. 169 from 109th Avenue to 394. Look for a wreck blocking the left lane at Hwy. 610. It's 25 minutes to reach Hwy. 7.
Westbound 694 is jammed from 35W over to Hwy. 252. That is 16 minutes.
Eastbound Crosstown is plagued with a crash at Tracy Avenue. Plan on 15 minutes to get over to 35W.
I-494 in both directions is 22 minutes from Hwy. 169 over to Cedar Avenue.
Southbound 35W is 20 minutes from Hwy. 10 down to Hwy. 280. Westbound Hwy. 36 is 18 minutes from Hwy. 61 over to Hwy. 280.
You'll also find pockets of congestion on southbound Hwy. 252 from 610 down to 694 and on southbound 494 from 94 to Hwy. 55.
The south metro is looking fairly good with no big delays on northbound Hwy. 169, 35W or Cedar Avenue.
