5:35 a.m. update: Treacherous

We don't have a lot of crashes or spinouts because we don't have a lot of traffic on the roads. These motorists probably wished they had not been on the road.  They landed in the center median on westbound Crosstown at Tracy Avenue in Edina.

Roads are snow and ice covered all across the metro area. That has created dangerous driving conditions.

If you do venture out, keep both hands on the wheel, and keep the speeds way way down.

The ramp from northbound 35W to westbound 494 is closed. A semi is blocking the ramp and can't get up.

Metro Transit is 90 percent on time at the moment. The average delay is 2 minutes.  Look for minor delays on the Metro Blue Line.
