A fresh wreck on the right shoulder has traffic tangled in the vicinity of Hwy. 280. It's still 20 minutes from downtown St. Paul to downtown Minneapolis.

There is word of a wreck on the ramp from westbound Hwy. 101 to northbound Hwy. 169. Probably best to avoid that area with the long jamup on northbound 169 due to the road work on the Bloomington Ferry Bridge.

Eastbound Hwy. 212 is not a better alternate. A wreck at Prairie Center Drive has traffic creeping along from near County Road 101.

It's slow going on both the Crosstown and 494 between Hwy. 169 and 35W. That is 20 minutes there.

A wreck on northbound 35W at 36th Street is causing delays of 8 to 10 minutes from Crosstown to downtown.
