Good morning, commuters!
That haze in the air in the Forest Lake/Columbus area is smoke from a large fire believed to be at greenhouse on the 13900 block of Lake Drive. This picture is from the MnDOT traffic cameras looking to the west from the I-35E/35W split.
It's another day in which drivers will battle road construction along I-494 through Plymouth and Maple Grove, and on Hwy. 5/W. 7th Street in St. Paul and near Ft. Snelling.
At present, traffic in both spots and all across the metro is moving without any problems.
I’ll 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, e-mail drive@startribune or tweet @stribdrive.
