As the peak of the rush hour appraoches, look for crowding on several routes.

On 494, it's 15 minutes in each direction between Hwy. 169 and Cedar Avenue. Look for a crash on westbound 494 on the right shoulder at 24th Avenue.

It's still 20 to 25 minutes from Hwy. 101 to 494/94 on eastbound 94 through Rogers and Maple Grove. A crash on the left shoulder at Maple Grove Pkwy. is partly to blame.

The Crosstown in both directions is about 15 minutes from Cedar Avenue over to Hwy. 169. No crashes, just lots of people on the roads.

Look for things to shake loose on westbound 494 at Hardman Avenue. The crash there has been cleared.

Northbound 35 is tight from County 46 up to Crystal Lake Road through Lakeville and Burnsville.
