The roads have been a complete disaster this morning as slippery conditions persist and all the folks who have had the past two days off head back to work and school.

Just about everywhere you go you will find crashes delaying traffic as we have 15 of them on the system at this moment.

The worst drive of the morning by far has been on southbound 35W from Blaine to downtown Minneapolis. Spinouts, rollovers and fender benders have tangled traffic from Lake Drive to Hennepin Avenue. That is 30 minutes or more.

Eastbound 94 from Rogers to Maple Grove has not been a picnic either. A crash at 95th Avenue is making matters worse. Plan on 25 minutes from Hwy. 241 down to the Fish Lake Interchange.

Northbound 35W is plugged up due to a crash at Cliff Road. But things are moving faster on 35W than they are on northbound Cedar Avenue. Things on Cedar are parked from 127th Street past a wreck at Hwy. 13.

Look for lots of stagnation on southbound Hwy. 100 from 94 past a right shoulder crash at 42nd Avenue in Crystal.
