Be careful on entrance and exit ramps. They are getting slick. In the past 30 minutes, we've had several fender benders as motorists are going too fast, then try to stop approaching the metered lights.

The latest is on the ramp from Nicollet Avenue to westbound 494 in Bloomington.

In Minneapolis, look for one on the ramp from New Brighton Blvd. to southbound 35W.

A crash on southbound 35W at University Avenue has finally cleared out, but traffic has not loosened a bit. It's jammed from Hwy. 280 to downtown Minneapolis. That is a 15-minute trip.
