Traffic is moving better on I-94 between Minneapolis and St. Paul, especially on the westbound side which had been painfully slow for much of the morning. The drive between the downtowns is now down to about 15 minutes. Look out for a stall at Portland Avenue.
It's not getting better on southbound 35W through Mounds View. A crash off to the left at I-694 has created a bottleneck that has traffic snarled back to Hwy. 10. Ahead, it's bumper to bumper from Hwy. 280 to I-94. In total, the trip from Lake Drive to downtown is 35 minutes.
Look out for a wreck on the ramp from 127th Street to northbound Cedar Avenue. Ahead, things are moving quite well all the way up to the Crosstown.
Southbound Hwy. 169 drivers will hit the brakes at Cedar Lake Road. That backup is due to road work at Hwy. 7.
