We have a number of trouble spots as we head into the final portion of the morning rush. The worst is on southbound 494 from Plymouth to Minnetonka. An earlier stall has traffic jammed from Rockford Road to Hwy. 7.

A crash on northbound 169 has cleared at Anderson Lakes Pkwy., but traffic is crammed from Canterbury Road up to 494. That is 18 minutes.

The right lane is blocked on northbound 35W at Franklin Avenue as a tow hooks up to a broken down bus.
