Early morning motorists are sailing right along on metro area highways and freeways, with no major delays or accidents on the system at this hour.
As a reminder, here are a few big construction projects that will likely impact traffic:
The ramp from northbound 494 to eastbound 394 is now closed until noon on May 18th while repairs are being made to a broken water main.
Work on the Park and Portland Avenue bridges over I-94 began Monday. Those bridges will be closed until August. If the traffic jam on Chicago Avenue is anything like early yesterday afternoon, it's going to be a big headache and a long summer.
Southbound I-35E is closed at County Road 42 for bridge repair. That will last until June 2.
On I-94, look for the left lane to be shut down in both directions between Century Avenue and I-694.
