A crash involving a semitrailer truck and a vehicle on eastbound 494 at Xerxes Avenue is making for a tough commute through Bloomington.

Traffic is stacked up at Hwy. 100 and the delays are growing. Plan on 20 minutes from Hwy. 212 to 35W.

On southbound 35E, an object flew out of a truck and landed in the lanes near Wagon Wheel Trail. Then a vehicle hit it. The vehicles and debris are on the right shoulder.

Look out for junk blocking the right lane of northbound 494 at Bass Lake Road.  Southbound traffic is heavy from 94 down to 49th Avenue. It's 12 minutes to get to 394.
