The middle of the rush hour has congestion on nearly every major route in town, and a couple of accidents and incidents are adding to the slow downs.

Look for a crash on eastbound 394 at Hopkins Crossroad.  It's 20 minutes from 169 to 94 on eastbound 394.

A motorist is changing a tire on northbound Hwy. 100 near Hwy. 7. Give him room. The drive from 50th Street up to 42nd Avenue is 15 minutes.

The northbound 35W drive is 20 minutes from Crosstown to downtown.

The Crosstown is 20 minutes in each direction from Cedar Avenue to Hwy. 169.

It's creeping along on southbound 35W from Lake Drive to Hwy. 280. It's 30 minutes to reach downtown Minneapolis.

Look for heavy traffic on westbound 610 from University Avenue across the Mississippi River Bridge. That is 8 minutes.
