Heavy traffic is making for a 20 minute commute on westbound Crosstown. Traffic stacks up at Gleason Road and remains bumper to bumper over to 35W.  Eastbound is heavy from 34th Avenue to Penn Avenue. Plan on 30 minutes from Hwy. 55.

A crash on the Bloomington Ferry Bridge is tangling traffic on northbound Hwy. 169 from County Road 83 up to 494. That is 15 minutes.

Southbound 169 is quite slow from Bass Lake Road down to 394. Plan on 15 minutes there.

Big time congestion is facing westbound 694 drivers from 35E to Central Avenue.

Both northbound 35E and 35W is heavy and slow from 494 to 94. Watch for a crash on northbound 35W at Cliff Road.
