Drivers on northbound Hwy. 169 are enjoying a delay-free commute through Shakopee and Bloomington. The bridge has reopened and all lanes are open. Southbound drivers, your day is coming. Word is those lanes will open sometime today.
On southbound 35W, drivers are not moving at all. A pair of wrecks is snarling the drive. They are at County Road I and 4th Street. It's 30 minutes from 95th Avenue down to 94. Look for a solid line from Hwy. 280 to downtown Minneapolis.
On westbound Hwy. 36, traffic bunches up at Dale Street. That's largely due to the crowded conditions on 35W.
The rest of the metro is looking good, with just minor delays on westbound 494 from Cedar Avenue to France Avenue.
