Commuters who are heading into work at this hour won't find too many hassles along the way. Most routes have loosened up and are flowing at near the posted speeds.
A few place where that is not the case include eastbound 694 from Xerxes Avenue to University Avenue in Brooklyn Center and Fridley.
Be prepared for slow conditions on westbound 494 from Cedar Avenue to Hwy. 100. That is 15 to 18 minutes.
A few drivers are slowing down to peek at a Highway Helper vehicle parked on the side of southbound Hwy. 100 at Minnetonka Blvd. The driver is trying to catch a dog that had been wandering near the highway.
Drivers on the Crosstown in either direction will find off and on delays between Hwy. 100 and 28th Avenue. That is both directions.
Look for crowded conditions on southbound 494 from 94 to Hwy. 55.
Westbound 94 is 17 minutes from I-35E over to the Lowry Hill Tunnel.
