Commuters on westbound 94 will lose speed from White Bear Avenue into downtown St. Paul, with 18 minutes needed from Manning Avenue to downtown St. Paul.

Look out for the motorist changing a tire on the right shoulder of southbound I-35W at Lake Drive. It's 20 minutes from Lexington Avenue to downtown Minneapolis.

Southbound Hwy. 169 is starting to pick up the pace. An earlier crash at Medicine Lake Road has left a pocket of congestion behind, with slow traffic from Bass Lake Road past Plymouth Avenue.

You'll notice a State Trooper on the left shoulder of southbound 35W at Lyndale Avenue. A motorist is stalled on the left shoulder.

Northbound 35W has spurts of speed and then slow downs from County 42 to 494. Plan on 25 minutes to downtown Minneapolis.

I-494 in both directions from 394 to Hwy. 212 is getting busy. Prepare to tap the brakes in spots.
