Police officers and tow truck operators are getting a workout this morning as they try to respond to scores of crashes and spin outs on metro area roads.
A rollover on northbound I-35 at County 50 in Lakeville is the start of problems for commuters in the south metro. Ahead, a crash has a lane blocked at County Road 42 and that has traffic near a standstill.
North of that, you'll find another mishap at Burnsville Pkwy. and another at 82nd Street.
The scene is similar all across the metro area. Here are the other trouble spots.
- Westbound 694 at Century Avenue in White Bear Lake
- Westbound 494 at Nicollet Avenue. The area is glare ice according to authorities
- Northbound 169 at Hwy. 55 in Golden Valley

- Westbound 94 at Hwy. 280. There also is on at Mounds Blvd.
