The latest wreck on the system is on eastbound 694 at East River Road. That is adding to the congestion that's already making the drive from Hwy. 252 to 35E a 27-minute trip.
Westbound 694 is also slow with 25 minutes needed from 35E over to County Road 81 in Brooklyn Park.
On southbound 35W, plan on 30 minutes from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 280.
Drivers are caught in near gridlock on westbound 94 in Minneapolis. A stall is blocking the center lane just past Franklin Avenue. A big traffic jam is in place from Hiawatha Avenue to the Lowry Hill Tunnel.
Eastbound 94 remains closed at 394 as crews clean up from a crash in which a semi crashed through the concrete median at the Lowry Hill Tunnel. Traffic is jammed from 42nd Avenue.
The Crosstown is barely moving in either direction between 34th Avenue and Hwy. 169. Plan on a good 20 to 25 minutes there.
Westbound Hwy. 36 is 26 minutes from Hwy. 61 over to Hwy. 280.
