The north metro is definitely taking the hit this morning as crashes plague the drive on eastbound 94 and southbound 35W.

The worst drive by far is on 35W. Currently we have crashes blocking the left lane at County Road C. That's in right near the Hwy. 36/Hwy. 280 area.

We also have a wreck on the right shoulder at County Road D.  That has traffic sputtering along from as far back as Lake Drive. Plan on 23 minutes from Lake Drive to Hwy. 280.

The spate of wrecks continues with a fresh wreck near the Lowry Hill Tunnel. That's impacting traffic on both eastbound 394 and 94.

Our other hot spot is on southbound Hwy. 280 at Territorial Road. The right lane is blocked.

Latest wreck is on westbound 94 just past Riverside Avenue in Minneapolis.
