Wet roads are creating havoc on the metro roads this morning, and that is leading to big delays.

The latest crash is on eastbound 694 at Long Lake Road. The drive from Hwy. 252 to 35E is close to 25 minutes.

On westbound 694, the drive is 18 minutes.

On southbound 35W, plan on 27 minutes from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 280.

On westbound Hwy. 36, it's 23 minutes from Hwy. 61 over to 35W.

A crash is blocking the right lane of southbound 35W at 76th Street. Northbound traffic is moving fairly well with 24 minutes needed from the Burnsville Split to downtown Minneapolis.

Things are not moving well on the Crosstown. It's stop and go in both directions from Hwy. 100 to 34th Avenue.

In St. Paul, westbound 94 is crawling from McKnight Road to downtown. A crash at Earl Street has cleared.

Southbound 35E is a slow roll from Hwy. 36 to 94.

I-494 is ugly in both directions from Hwy. 169 to Cedar Avenue. Plan on 20 to 30 minutes there.
