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.
Major delays continue for 694 WB at Main St in Fridley due to a crash. If you don't mind going the long way, it might be time to think about taking an alternate....https://t.co/2bXnWJs5hf pic.twitter.com/owbmyHbxYc— KSTP Traffic (@kstptraffic) April 12, 2018
Smith also reminded drivers of continuing roadwork along Highway 10 in Elk River.
