A semi vs. car crash on southbound Hwy. 101 at 141st Avenue cleared about 15 minutes ago, but the backup and congestion is created has not disappeared. It's a solid line of traffic from north of County Road 37 to I-94, so plan on an extra 5 minutes coming down from Elk River.

The usual crowding is beginning to form on northbound 35W from County 42 up to the Minnesota River, and on southbound 35W from Lake Drive down to 694. Still, nothing that will set you back more than a couple minutes.

Northbound Hwy. 169 over the Minnesota River bridge and up to 494 is getting busy, so commuters there can plan on 2 to 5 extra minutes heading up to Bloomington.
