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.
