The rush hour has been fairly routine except for a few accidents that have cleared, and some minor congestion.
At present, traffic slows on northbound 35W from Crosstown to downtown. That is 10 minutes.
Crosstown in both directions is 10 to 12 minutes between Hwy. 100 and I-35W.
Give yourself 15 minutes on 494 in either direction between Hwy. 169 and Cedar Avenue. There is a crash on westbound 494 at Lyndale Avenue.
Northbound 35W slows in at the Crosstown due to a wreck in the carpool lane.
I-94 is tight in both directions between the Lowry Hill Tunnel and Hwy. 280. That is about 8 to 10 minutes.
