The drive on 694 in both directions continues to be a bear between 35E and Central Avenue. That is 20 minutes in both directions.
On westbound Hwy. 36, a crash in the left lane is stacking up traffic beginning at Hwy. 61. The wreck is at Dale Street.
A stall on northbound 35W is 15 minutes from Crosstown to downtown. A stall at 36th Street is now out of the way.
Northbound Cedar Avenue is still trying to recover from an earlier crash at 66th Street. There are pockets of congestion from the Mall of America up to the Crosstown.
Look for slowdowns on eastbound 394 from Hwy. 100 to Dunwoody Blvd.
Southbound 35W is quite heavy from Hwy. 10 ti 694 and slows again at Johnson Pkwy. Plan on 25 minutes from Hwy. 10 to downtown Minneapolis.
