A stalled vehicle on westbound 94 at Nicollet Avenue in downtown Minneapolis is bogging down traffic from Portland Avenue.  Ahead, look for a tiny ramp jam heading onto westbound 394.

Northbound Hwy. 169 runs slow from County Road 18 up to 494. That's due to an earlier stall on the Bloomington Ferry Bridge.  That trip is now at 10 minutes.

The drive into St. Paul on westbound 94 has a couple hiccups. The first is a two-car crash on the ramps from west 94 to the 694/494 freeways in Woodbury/Maplewood.  Ahead, a rear-end wreck in the left lane at Hwy. 52 has commuters swerving to avoid the wreckage. Look for brake lights at Mounds Blvd.  Total drive time from Manning to Marion Street is 14 minutes.

One other area of note where things slow down, that's on 494 from 24th Avenue over to 35W. It's 8 minutes from Cedar Avenue to Hwy. 100.
