7:20 a.m. update: Crawling on the Crosstown

Drivers on the Crosstown are finding it a slow slow commute. We have a crash on the westbound side at Gleason Road causing delays back to Lyndale Avenue.

Blame the gwaker effect and the sun up slow down for tangling eastbound traffic. Things are bumper to bumper from Gleason Road all the way over to Penn Avenue.  Plan on 15 to 18 minutes there.

The usual congestion is now in place on 494 in both directions from Hwy. 169 to Cedar Avenue.

A crash on southbound 494 at Hwy. 55 is now gone, but still expect 15 minutes from 94 down to 394.

Westbound 694 is not moving fast at all. A long line of traffic is in place from 35E over to Central Avenue. Plan on 15 minutes there.
