Keeping tabs on Tuesday's morning commute

Good morning, commuters!
We start Tuesday with roads in great shape, but I am expected a few hot spots to develop as the rush rolls on.
One of those is on Hwy. 10 through Anoka and Coon Rapids. The highway is down to a single lane from Greenhaven Drive and 7th Avenue. That was plugged up most of the morning on Monday.
If yesterday was any indication, congestion on northbound Hwy. 169 will be back over the Bloomington Ferry Bridge. That in turn usually mean traffic on northbound 35W will be heavier than usual.
A reminder that the right lane of northbound Hwy. 13 on the bridge over I-35W is closed after crews discovered damage over the weekend. In addition the ramp to southbound 35W is closed until further notice.
I' ll be keeping an eye on the roads and rails this morning, reporting any delays or issues — and I will need your help.
If you see or hear about any congestion, delays or problems, e-mail drive@startribune or tweet @stribdrive.
