Not much in the way of traffic hiccups at this hour. The State Patrol has retrieved a bumper that was lying in the center lane of westbound 694 near the Mississippi River bridge. That was enough to create sluggish conditions from Central Avenue to the river.

Other than that, commuters will run into pockets of slow and go traffic in the usual spots:

  • Northbound I-35W from County 42 to Black Dog Road
  • Westbound I-94 from Ruth Street into downtown St. Paul
  • Eastbound I-94 from Hwy. 101 to the Fish Lake Interchange
