Eastbound Hwy. 10 is bunching up between Round Lake Blvd. and Hanson Blvd. through Coon Rapids, adding a couple minutes to the drive over to 35W.

Speeds are between 35 and 40 miles per hour on southbound 35W from Lexington Avenue down to County Road 10. It's 11 minutes to reach Hwy. 280.

Westbound 94 is starting to get sluggish from White Bear Avenue to downtown St. Paul.  It's 15 minutes from Manning Avenue to Marion Street/35E.

Northbound Hwy. 169 crams at the Minnesota River Bridge in Bloomington to 494 while northbound 35W sputters along from County Road 42 up to 494. Both trips are 10 minutes.

Northbound Cedar Avenue loses steam from 35E up to the Crosstown. That is 11 minutes.
