Authorities have pushed the wreckage of a bad crash on Hwy. 169/Hwy. 101 at Hwy. 10 in Elk River off to the westbound side of the highway, and all eastbound/southbound lanes are now open.

Westbound still has the left lane blocked with emergency vehicles.

I'm happy to report that northbound Hwy. 169 is moving quite well through Shakopee and Bloomington. You'll hit a line of traffic on the Bloomington Ferry Bridge, but no big delays to report at this hour.

In Albertville, look for overnight road work to slow traffic from Monticello to Albertville. That's adding an extra 10 minutes to the drive.
