Congestion is firmly entrenched on 494 in both directions through Bloomington. Westbound drivers will be stuck in slow moving traffic from Hwy. 169 over to 35W. Eastbound drivers will find things tight from Portland Avenue to France Avenue.
On southbound 35E, the crash near County Road 96 has just cleared, but the back up to Main Street is still in place. Plan on an extra 10 minutes on that drive.
Northbound 35W is sluggish from 50th Street to downtown Minneapolis. Look for crash activity on the right shoulder near Lake Street.
Levels are quickly building on the eastbound Crosstown from Hwy. 100 to 35W. Plan on a few extra minutes there.
