The smooth commute continues with traffic moving at or near the posted speeds on most mainline routes.
Our trouble spots are on northbound Hwy. 169 at Hwy. 41. Police are dealing with an overturned vehicle in the right turn lane.
On southbound 35E, traffic slows from Hwy. 36 to downtown St. Paul. That's mainly do to the gawker slow down as motorists peek at the remnants of a semi fire on the northbound side at Pennsylvania Avenue. Two right lanes are blocked with fire rigs. Northbound traffic is at a near standstill from University Avenue.
In Lakeville, the grind continues through the work zone. It's plugged up from 195th Street up to County 46 for northbound drivers. It's 15 minutes through there.
