Today's drive to work was wicked for those on westbound 94 heading into downtown St. Paul and continuing over to Minneapolis. Congestion and a handful of accidents made the trip extremely long, at times taking up to 40 minutes.

Currently that trip is only 20 minutes, so much better.

Eastbound 394 drivers will hit a couple snags with slow traffic from General Mills Blvd. to Hwy. 100 and from Penn Avenue to 394. The trip in from 169 will take about 15 minutes.

Westbound Hwy. 36 is unusually heavy for this hour. It's still 17 minutes between 35E and 35W.

Southbound 494 has pockets of congestion from 694/94 to Hwy. 55. That is 11 to 14 minutes.

There is word of a new crash on southbound 94 between Hwy. 55 and 394. Look for a brief delay and heavy traffic through the Lowry Hill Tunnel over to 35W.
