You know it's slippery when law enforcement has trouble. This St. Paul police car wiped out on the ramp from southbound 35E to westbound 94.
That was one of probably more than 100 wrecks on the system this morning, and they just keep coming.
At present, there are at least 14 crashes on the system. Among the newest include northbound Hwy. 100 at John Martin Drive and a truck that landed on its side on the ramp from Main Street to southbound I-35E in Lino Lakes.
Elsewhere, westbound 494 is a cluster with traffic barely moving from Hwy. 5 to Hwy. 100. The good news there is that the lane blocking crash at France Avenue has cleared. Still, it's close to 40 minutes to get through there. And now, a new crash on westbound 494 at Lyndale will keep things gummed up.
Traffic doesn't move much better on northbound 35W with 40 minutes needed from Burnsville to Minneapolis.
Both directions of I-94 between Minneapolis and St. Paul still have issues. Eastbound has a crash at Hwy. 280. Westbound is crash free for the moment, but traffic is still recovering from a spate of earlier mishaps.
