The Thursday morning commute became sticky for metro area drivers just before 8 a.m.


KSTP Traffic Reporter Josie Smith warned drivers traffic along eastbound routes throughout the metro was moving more slowly than normal.

She also said a couple of crashes slowed traffic; one crash occurred along westbound Interstate 494 near Hardman Avenue in St. Paul while another, multi-vehicle crash occurred along westbound Interstate 694 at Main Street in Fridley.

Smith said the I-694 crash especially created significant delays.

Smith also reminded drivers of continuing roadwork along Highway 10 in Elk River.
