Get ready for a slow drive on westbound 94 from Manning Avenue all the way to downtown Minneapolis. Things really bunch up from McKnight Road to downtown and again approaching Snelling Ave.

Look for pockets of heavy traffic on the Crosstown in both directions between Hwy. 100 and 28th Avenue. It's 15 minutes through there.

It's about the same on 494 both directions through Bloomington.

By far, the worst traffic is on 694 westbound through Fridley and Brooklyn Center. Most drivers are going less than 10 miles per hour from Silver Lake Road to Hwy. 100.

That is about what drivers on southbound Hwy. 169 are experiencing, too. Road work at 49th Avenue has the highway down to one lane and traffic backed up to 77th Avenue.
