The drive to work has been fairly pleasant for most drivers, but those on westbound 94 are experiencing some delays.

We have no accidents on the freeway, but just heavy traffic from White Bear Avenue over to Hwy. 280. That drive will take 20 minutes.

The State Patrol has just cleared a crash on northbound 35E at W. 7th Street. It's on the right shoulder. Plan on 15 minutes from 494 up to 94.

Westbound Hwy. 36 is 10 minutes from Edgerton Street over to Hwy. 280.

On southbound 35W, it's 15 minutes from County Road I down to Hwy. 280.

In the west metro, both 494 and 169 in both directions from 94 and the Crosstown are looking good.

In the south metro, look for some slow and go conditions on westbound 494 from Lyndale Avenue to Hwy. 100, and on northbound 35W from Burnsville Pkwy. to 494.
