The roads are clear and things are back to normal on westbound Hwy. 610 after an earlier crash had tied up traffic on the Mississippi River bridge.

On 694, look for a brief delay through the work zone in both directions from Hwy. 252 to Central Avenue.

Things are still tough in the south metro.

Northbound 35W is 20 minutes from County Road 42 up to 494. From Crosstown to downtown Minneapolis, that is another 17 minutes.

Five cars are off on the right shoulder on westbound 494 at Hwy. 5. Ahead, it's 20 minutes to reach Hwy. 100. Eastbound is looking better with only 10 minutes needed.

The Crosstown continues to struggle. Westbound is still 20 minutes from 34th Avenue over to Hwy. 100. Eastbound is 13 minutes from Hwy. 169 to 35W.

Westbound 94 is awful from McKnight Road over to I-35W. That is 35 minutes.
