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
  • Northbound 35E at Maryland Avenue and another at Larpenteur Avenue in St. Paul
  • Westbound 94 at Hwy. 280. There also is on at Mounds Blvd.
  • Northbound Hwy. 61 at 80th Street in Newport
  • Eastbound Hwy. 10 just east of Hwy. 169 in Anoka
