Aside from a persisting crash on northbound Cedar Avenue at the Minnesota River bridge and one on southbound 494 at Rockford Road, metro area highways and freeways are moving just fine.
Commuters on eastbound 394 will encounter pockets of congestion between General Mills Blvd. and downtown Minneapolis, but nothing more than a 2-3 minute delay.
I-494 and 694 through Oakdale and Woodbury is wide open. Northbound Hwy. 61 and Hwy. 52 also have lots of room.
No problems on 694 between 35W and the Fish Lake Interchange. Eastbound Crosstown looks fine from 494 over to Cedar Avenue.
