Motorists will find plenty of company on westbound 494 from 12th Avenue over to France Avenue. That is a 15-minute drive at present.
Eastbound traffic slows approaching East Bush Lake Road and remains heavy over to France Avenue.
A fender bender on the right shoulder of southbound 35W at County Road I is adding to congestion from 95th Avenue down to 694. Eastbound Hwy. 10 slows from County Road J over to 35W.
Eastbound 94 is tight from Hwy. 241 in St. Michael down to Weaver Lake Road. That is 18 to 20 minutes.
Eastbound Hwy. 36 is starting to fill in from 35E over to Snelling Avenue. A reminder that Hwy. 36 in both directions is reduced to a single lane from 35E east to Hwy. 61 as work on the Keller Lake bridge is underway. And the entire highway is closed from Hwy. 61 to White Bear Avenue for construction until August.
I-694 is moving well considering it is down to two lanes in each direction from East River Road over to Hwy. 100. The slowest traffic is westbound, adding about 3 to 5 minutes to the drive.
