If we are going to have another crash, of course, it would be on westbound I-94. This one, however, is over on the Hudson Bridge. A vehicle spun out and hit the concrete bridge barrier. That's having no impact on the commute.

Earlier problems in the Midway that bogged down the drive between Dale Street and Hwy. 280 are long gone.

Traffic is so light at this hour that there is not even a hint of congestion on mainline routes in the core of the metro. Speeds do dip a bit on westbound 494 from Pilot Knob Road over to 35W and in spots along the Crosstown.  But we'll take that.
