Things have filled in on westbound Hwy. 36, so much so that the trip from Hwy. 61 to I-35W is now at 18 minutes. And that is with no crashes or incidents.
The rain has hit the west metro, and the south too. Perhaps that is what is causing the jam up on northbound Hwy. 169. Plan on 20 to 22 minutes from Canterbury Road up to 494.
The westbound Crosstown is trudging along from Portland Avenue out to Hwy. 100. That is a 15-minute trip.
Northbound 35W plugs up from Burnsville Pkwy. to the Minnesota River bridge, then things flow pretty well into downtown Minneapolis. Plan on 25 minutes for this trip.
