Rollovers galore and spin outs too. It's all happening due to black ice that has formed. You can't go too slow today.
In some places, you don't have a choice. Traffic is at a standstill on wesbound 694 from Central Avenue past a crash at East River Road in Fridley.
Look for backups on 694 in both directions near Century Avenue in White Bear Lake. The second rollover of the morning at that location.
Southbound 280 at Energy Park Drive is another hot spot.
Traffic is jammed on I-35 from County 50 in Lakeville past crashes ahead at County 42 and on 35W at Burnsville Pkwy.
Westbound 494 is creeping along from Portland Avenue to 35W. Look for a spinout at Lyndale Avenue.
