Drivers are experiencing big delays on 494 in Bloomington. Eastbound is packed from W. Bush Lake Road over to 35W. Westbound is hardly moving from 24th Avenue over to Hwy. 100. Get ready for a 20-minute ride.

Those drivers won't get any sympathy from motorists stuck in traffic on 694 in the north metro. Eastbound traffic comes to a halt at Silver Lake Road and doesn't loosen until Hwy. 10.  Adding to the delays is a crash at Long Lake Road.

Westbound is thick from Victoria Street to 35W.  Plan on 12 to 15 minutes through there.

Southbound 35W is now 20 minutes from 95th Avenue to Hwy. 280.
