It looks like the worst of the rush hour is behind us as traffic on most routes has loosened.
We still have come bunching up on the Crosstown in both directions between Hwy. 100 and 35W. Plan on 10 to 15 minutes there.
The worst traffic is on westbound 94. An earlier crash near Hwy. 280 is gone, but lingering delays remain. Plan on 20 minutes from Mounds Blvd to reach 35W in Minneapolis.
Westbound Hwy. 36 has a slow pocket of traffic near Lexington Avenue. It's 12 minutes from Edgerton Street to Hwy. 280.
Both directions of 694 have areas of tight traffic from 35E to Central Avenue. But that is only adding a few minutes to the drive.
