The award for the worst traffic goes to 694 in the north metro and 494 in the south metro.
In the north, westbound 694 is creeping along from 35W over to Hwy. 252. That will take 20 minutes. Eastbound drivers will encounter delays approaching 35W and over to Dale Street.
In the south, the drive on 494 in both directions from Hwy. 169 over to Cedar Avenue will cost you 20 minutes.
Crosstown is tight heading east from Hwy. 212 over to 35W. A crash is on the right shoulder at Tracy Avenue.
You'll find a squeeze on westbound Hwy. 36 from 35E over to 35W making for a 10-minute drive. Things are tight on southbound 35W from 694 down to Hwy. 280.
Look for a little sun-up slow down on eastbound 694 from 494 to Boone Avenue. And pockets of congestion on southbound 494 from 94 down to Hwy. 55.
