Overnight road work on southbound Hwy. 169 is still going on and one lane is closed at 49th Avenue. That is leading to backups that extend north of Bass Lake Road. Give yourself 10 minutes to through the work zone.
On westbound 694, a traffic stop at Central Avenue is the beginning of the delays. Ahead the freeway is reduced to two lanes from University Avenue over to Hwy. 252. Traffic is slow through there. Plan on five to seven extra minutes on that drive.
Things are filling in on southbound 35W from Hwy. 10 down to Hwy. 280. That drive is at 12 minutes at present.
There was word of some deer wandering along westbound 94 at Manning Avenue in Woodbury. So far, no delays reported in that area.
Northbound I-35 from County Road 46 to Crystal Lake Road is moving swiftly at this hour. Look for the right lane closure at Crystal Lake Road, and then single lane in each direction on I-35E from the split up to Cedar Avenue.
