Patience is needed on Hwy. 5/W. 7th Street through St. Paul. With the road reduced to a single lane due to bridge construction, traffic is knotted up in both directions between Ft. Snelling and Davern Street.
Construction delays also are in place big time on Hwy. 100. Northbound comes to a crawl approaching Excelsior Blvd. while southbound drivers hit the brakes at Glenwood Avenue.
Congestion on southbound 494 is showing some signs of loosening, but it's still 20 minutes from 94 down to 394.
Traffic is plugged up on northbound 35W from Crosstown to downtown Minneapolis. That's now 15 minutes.
It's painfully slow and go on westbound 94 from Hwy. 280 to the Lowry Hill Tunnel. Eastbound is locked up from Plymouth Avenue to 35W.
And crashes on I-694 has things moving much slower than normal in both directions between Silver Lake Road and Lexington Avenue.
