Two wrecks are hampering the drive on northbound Cedar Avenue. The first incident is on the Minnesota River bridge approaching Old Shakopee Road. Things stack up beginning at Hwy. 13.

Ahead, a wreck on westbound Crosstown at Cedar Avenue has traffic on Cedar waiting in line approaching 66th Street in Richfield.

It's slow going on 694 in both directions between Central Avenue and 35E. That drive will take 20 minutes.

On Hwy. 212, traffic is tight from Dell Road over to Crosstown. Ahead, things don't really loosen up until you get past Portland Avenue. Plan on 20 minutes to make that trip.

Not much better on 494 due to a wreck on the eastbound side at Hwy. 100. Westbound is creeping along from Cedar Avenue to 169.  Plan on 20 minutes there.

A nice traffic jam is in place on westbound 94 from White Bear Avenue all the way over to Marion Street.
