A multi-vehicle crash on northbound Hwy. 169 is affecting traffic on both the right and left lanes at Betty Crocker Drive. A couple cars slammed into the concrete median. Traffic is stacking up at 394.

Crashes on the Crosstown, 35W and 394 have cleared out, and traffic has returned to normal levels.

I-494 still has a few pockets of congestion in both directions between Hwy. 100 and Cedar Avenue. But the rest of the system is incident and accident free.

If you are going to the office a bit late today, you will make good time.

As far as the weekend is concerned, look for a blog post mid-morning with information on road closures and a construction update.
