The number of crashes has slowed in the past few minutes, but congestion has not loosened its grip. Several west metro routes, 494, Hwy. 100 and Hwy. between 94 and Crosstown continues to run very very slow.
Westbond 494 has off and on pockets of slow and go traffic from Mendota Heights to Bloomington.
Northbound 35W is sputtering from Crosstown to downtown Minneapolis. That is 18 minutes.
Southbound 35W is tight from 694 to downtown Minneapolis. That trip is 30 minutes.
Westbound 94 is clogged from Dale Street to Riverside Avenue. Plan on 22 minutes for that drive.
