Good morning commuters.

Drivers will be seeing lots of orange, as in cones, barrels and "Road Closed" signs. A few major routes and crossings are under construction.

Among them are:

The ramp from northbound 494 to eastbound 394 is now closed until noon on May 18th while repairs are being made to a broken water main.

Work on the Park and Portland Avenue bridges over I-94 began Monday. Those bridges will be closed until August. If the traffic jam on Chicago Avenue is anything like early yesterday afternoon, it's going to be a big headache and a long summer.

Southbound I-35E is closed at County Road 42 for bridge repair. That will last until June 2.

On I-94, look for the left lane to be shut down in both directions between Century Avenue and I-694.

At the current time, lane restrictions that had been in place in both directions of 494 at France Avenue in Bloomington have lifted.

I will  be keeping an eye on the roads and rails this morning, reporting any delays or issues — and I will need your help.

If you see or hear about any congestion, delays or problems, leave a comment here, e-mail drive@startribune or tweet @stribdrive.
