It continues to be an agonizing drive for commuters in the north and west metro.  A crash on southbound 35W at County Road 88 brings traffic to its knees four miles to the north at Lake Drive.

The construction on I-494 has traffic all knotted up from Rockford Road down to 394. Things are starting to loosen north of Rockford.

Congestion has travel times on southbound Hwy. 169 off the charts from Brooklyn Park down to the Crosstown, with the worst from 36th Avenue down to Minnetonka Blvd.  Northbound suffers from Hwy. 7 up to 394.
