Mainline highways continue to move along at or near the posted speeds in most places, but we do have a few places where congestion is slowing traffic.

One of the slowest spots is on northbound Hwy. 169 where crash clean up is underway at Pioneer Trail. Plan on 10 minutes from Hwy. 101 up to 494.

Look out for a car vs. deer crash on Hwy. 55 at Hwy. 13.

Congestion is the reason for the slow down on westbound 494 from Cedar Avenue to Hwy. 100.

Things are sluggish on southbound 35E from Little Canada Road to downtown St. Paul. The same is true on westbound 94 from McKnight Road to downtown St. Paul.

On northbound Hwy. 61, things are tight approach Warner Road due to an earlier crash.

Look for pockets of heavy traffic on southbound Hwy.100 from I-394 down to Hwy. 7, and southbound 35W from Hwy. 10 to County Road E2.
