We end the Tuesday rush hour with a few tough spots in Minneapolis. A crash on the shoulder of eastbound 94 at 7th Street has traffic backed up to Broadway. Ahead plan on 8 minutes to reach 35W.

On eastbound 394, things are crowded from Hwy. 100 to downtown Minneapolis. A stall sitting on the right shoulder at Dunwoody Blvd. is adding to the congestion.

Westbound 94 is packed from Dale Street over to 35W. Plan on 25 minutes between the downtowns. We have no crashes, just lots of people on the road.

Northbound Hwy. 169 has its issues at the Bloomington Ferry Bridge, but unlike yesterday, delays only start at County Road 18. Monday it was stacked up well beyond Canterbury Road.

Other routes apparently took up the slack. That might explain why northbound 35 and 35W have been busier than normal. At this hour, things are improving but look for pockets of congestion from County Road 42 up to 98th Street.

Two other crashes impacting traffic are on westbound 694 at Century Avenue in White Bear Lake and westbound 494 at Cedar Avenue in Bloomington.
