Rain and congestion are making for longer-than-normal commutes in the north metro.

A crash is complicating the drive on southbound 35W. The fender bender is on the right shoulder at County Road I. Delays begin at 95th Avenue and continue down to County E2. That is a 20 minute drive.

On eastbound 94, allow up to 30 minutes from Hwy. 101 in Rogers to 494 in Maple Grove. Ahead, things remain packed on southbound 494 from 94 to 394. That is about 15 minutes.

Northbound 35W has pockets of slow traffic from County Road 42 up to the Minnesota River bridge. Ahead, things loosen around 86th Street in Bloomington.

Northbound 35E and Cedar seem to be moving just fine.

Looks like a truck might have lost its load on northbound 494 approaching 394.

Eastbound 394 is heavy from 169 over to Hwy. 100.
