Southbound Hwy. 169 has become an absolute mess because of a two-vehicle crash at Medicine Lake Road. One vehicle is blocking the left lane and another partially the right lane.  Motorists are squeezing between the damaged vehicles in the middle. 

The back up is already near 49th Avenue.

Commuters on eastbound 394 are being delayed due to a crash that just cleared at Wirth Pkwy. Brake lights come on near Xenia Avenue.

In Richfield, two lanes of northbound Cedar Avenue are blocked just south of the Crosstown.

Look for a left-lane blocking crash on southbound 35W at Lexington Avenue. Things are tight in the area, but it's still a decent drive from Lake Drive to downtown Minneapolis. 25 minutes.
