8:30 a.m. update: Looking better on I-94

A handful of crashes earlier in the rush hour made for a rough trip on I-94 between Minneapolis and St. Paul. Things are flowing much better now that incidents have cleared.

One exception is a minor bunch up on eastbound 94 at Hwy. 280 past a broken down truck that lost a tire at Prior Avenue.  Overall, drive times have dropped in half. Plan on 15 minutes either direction between the downtowns.

Elsewhere, northbound Hwy. 169 is loosening across the Bloomington Ferry Bridge, but there are pockets of slowness heading up to 494.

Southbound 35W sputters a bit approaching Stinson Blvd. where we have a wreck on the right shoulder.  Meanwhile, northbound 35W has a little hiccup at the Minnesota River Bridge in Burnsville. A crash is on the right shoulder and lots of activity to boot.
