It's a very slow drive on westbound 494 through Bloomington with congestion in place from Cedar Avenue over to Hwy. 100. That is now a 20-minute drive.

Eastbound traffic isn't quite as heavy, but you will find pockets of slow traffic from E. Bush Lake Road to 35W.

Look for brake lights coming on on northbound Hwy. 52 at Plato Blvd. A reminder that vehicles longer than 35 feet are prohibited from using the new crossover to the new Lafayette Bridge. State Troopers are on scene.

Look for building levels on westbound Crosstown from 35W to Penn Avenue, and on northbound 35W from 42nd Street to 94.

We are still accident free on the system at this hour.
