An ambulance has just arrived on the scene of a wreck on westbound 94 at the I-494/694 interchange in Woodbury. Ahead, things creep along from McKnight Road to Dale Street. Things bunch up again from Riverside Avenue to Nicollet Av. From 694 to downtown Minneapolis is up to 40 minutes.
The activity on northbound Hwy. 100 at Hwy. 7 is gone, but traffic continues to jam up from 50th Street to I-394. That's adding 10 to 12 minutes to the drive.
Southbound 35W is plugged up from Lake Drive to 694 and again from Industrial Blvd. to Hennepin Avenue. Plan on 35 minutes from Mounds View to downtown Minneapolis.
Eastbound 394 struggles from General Mills Blvd. to downtown Minneapolis. That is 20 minutes.
