Traffic levels are increasing fast on southbound Hwy. 169 and I-494, and in turn speeds are dropping as the congestion builds.
On I-494, plan on 15 minutes from the Fish Lake Split down to I-394.
On southbound 169, it's 25 to 27 minutes from Hwy. 610 down to Hwy. 7.
Elsewhere look for a knot on southbound 35E from Hwy. 36 down to Pennsylvania Avenue.
Northbound Hwy. 169 and 35W in the south metro have pockets of congestion on either side of the Minnesota River, but nothing out of the ordinary.
