A crash involving a motorcyclist is blocking a lane on westbound Hwy. 610 near the Mississippi River bridge has traffic at a standstill and backed up to Hwy. 10. Plan on a major delay of 15 minutes or more.

In the west metro, a driver lost control and slammed into the concrete median. That has the left lane blocked on northbound 494 just prior to 394. Look for a bottleneck there.  Southbound slows past the scene.

Look for a 20 minute drive on the Crosstown in both directions from Hwy. 5 to Hwy. 169.

Eastbound 394 is tight from Hwy. 169 to Wirth Pkwy.  That is 10 minutes.

Prepare to hit the brakes on westbound 94 from Hwy. 280 to the Lowry Hill Tunnel. That is 12 minutes.
