Wet roads are making for a long commute all across the metro. We've had a number of crashes and heavy traffic volumes this morning.

Here are some current travel times:

Northbound 35W from the Burnsville Split to the Crosstown is 22 minutes. There is a crash at Hwy. 13.

The Crosstown is crawling in both directions. Eastbound Hwy. 212 from 494 to Crosstown and over to 35W is 27 minutes. Eastbound Crosstown from 34th Avenue to Hwy. 100 is 24 minutes.

Westbound 94 is 23 minutes from 694 to 94. It also jams up again at Hwy. 280 to the Lowry Hill Tunnel. That is another 15 minutes.

On southbound 35W, it's 33 minutes from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 280.  Westbound Hwy. 36 is 22 minutes from Hwy. 61 over to 35W.

I-694 is parked in both directions from Hwy. 252 to 35E.  Plan on 25 minutes there. Look for a crash on eastbound 694 at Long Lake Road.
