Traffic trouble in the east metro includes westbound 94, which has pockets of slow and go traffic from Manning Avenue over to 694 and from Johnson Pkwy. into downtown St. Paul.

The big mess in the area of the Mendota Bridge. The bridge is down to one lane in each direction. The result is stagnation on eastbound Crosstown from 43rd Avenue to the bridge. On westbound Hwy. 55, a long back up stretches back to I-494 while westbound Hwy. 110 creeps along from 35E across the bridge.

The Crosstown also is filling westbound from 28th Avenue to I-35W while eastbound drags from Hwy. 100 to 35W.

Speed is nonexistent on southbound I-494 and Hwy. 169 from Bass Lake Road down to I-394.

Southbound Hwy. 100 is languishing from 36th Avenue through the work zone down to Excelsior Blvd.
