The rush hour is in full swing now and many routes are seeing typical traffic volumes.
On eastbound 94, a stall near County Road 81 in Maple Grove is getting some attention from drivers passing by. Look for a solid line of traffic all the way down to the 494/694 split. Plan on 10 minutes there.
In Lakeville, traffic on northbound 35 slows starting at County Road 46. That's due to road work ahead on 35E.
Westbound I-94 is heavier than normal from Hwy. 61 over to 35E. That might be due to some drivers that normally take Hwy. 36 dropping down to 94. Hwy. 36 is closed from White Bear Avenue to Hwy. 61 for the next two months.
Hwy. 169 through Edina and Hopkins is moving quite nicely at this hour. It's single lane in both directions from Crosstown to Hwy. 7.
Southbound 35W is 20 minutes from Lake Drive down to Hwy. 280. It's creeping along.
