It is just plain gnarly getting into downtown Minneapolis as a spate of late rush hour crashes have snarled traffic on westbound I-94. Traffic is jammed back to Franklin Avenue. The problems include a center-lane blocker at Cedar Avenue with wrecks ahead at Hiawatha Avenue and 11th Street.
Adding to the trouble is a lane-blocking wreck on southbound Hwy. 280 just prior to the I-94 interchange.
For 35W drivers, three-cars involved in a smash up are blocking the HOT lane at 46th Street. That has traffic clogged back to the Crosstown Commons.
And the aforementioned problems on westbound 94 is creating a ramp jam from southbound 35W to westbound 94. Look for sluggish traffic from Johnson Street to Hiawatha Avenue.
