Kudos to police and MnDOT First drivers who cleared a two-vehicle crash on southbound Hwy. 169 at Medicine Lake Road in near record time.  The crash blocking both the left and right lanes was there only a couple minutes.

The activity on northbound Cedar Avenue at 66th Street has been moved off to the right shoulder, so at least one lane is open approaching the Crosstown.

Two crashes on eastbound 394 have cleared, but traffic continues to bunch up from General Mills Blvd. to downtown Minneapolis.

And finally, a stall that had been blocking a lane on southbound 35E at Cayuga Street in St. Paul has been towed away. But traffic is jammed from 694 to downtown St. Paul. Plan on 17 minutes for that drive.
