The good news for southbound 35E drivers is that the segment from Little Canada Road to downtown St. Paul is crash-free at the moment.

But three earlier crashes have snarled traffic and things are just not shaking loose. The most recent crash just cleared a few minutes ago.

In Minneapolis, the ramp from westbound 94 to 11th Street is backed up. That's causing delays stretching back to near Riverside Avenue.

Another hot spot is on southbound 35W at Lexington Avenue. A vehicle is in the center median and a MnDOT First Unit has the left lane blocked. Delays begin at Sunset Road.

Northbound Cedar Avenue has opened up now that wrecks at Diffley Road and 66th Street have moved to the right shoulder and all traffic lanes are open.
