People are boarding buses on the new BRT Line along Cedar Avenue and all is running smoothly, said Robin Selvig, a spokeswoman for the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority.
Vehicles on Cedar Avenue heading north will find traffic bunches up from Diffley Road up to Old Shakopee Road.
The worst drive of the morning is on westbound 94 from McKnight Road to 35E. A wreck at Hwy. 52 on the left shoulder is part of the reason for the 20 minute drive.
Look for crowding on southbound 35W from 95th Avenue down to 694. Plan on 18 minutes to reach Hwy. 280.
Traffic slows on Hwy. 55 on either side of 494 in Plymouth.
The push on northbound 35W is 20 minutes from County Road 46 in Lakeville up to the Crosstown. Ahead, look for congestion on 35W at 26th Street.
Along 494 in Bloomington, plan on 15 minutes from Cedar to Hwy. 100 in both directions.
