The good news is that the State Patrol has cleaned up the large pieces of insulation that had been littering the lanes of westbound 494 near 24th Avenue.  Now it's the typical congestion between Cedar Avenue and Hwy. 100 that is making for a 15 minute drive.

Eastbound drivers will encounter a brief slow down approaching Hwy. 100, with tight traffic in place to France Avenue.

Westbound 694 is looking pretty good with only minor delays from Central Avenue to Hwy. 100.

No problems on eastbound Hwy. 212 through Eden Prairie. Ahead, the Crosstown is in the building stage from Tracy Avenue to 35W.

On eastbound 94, plan on a 15 to 18 minute drive from Hwy. 101 in Rogers to 494/94 in Maple Grove.

Southbound 494 is tight from the Fish Lake Interchange down to 49th Avenue. Add about 5 extra minutes to the drive.
