Ryan said a three-vehicle crash on I-35W southbound up against the barrier in Arden Hills has slowed traffic. That's from U.S. 910A to U.S. 10.

MnDOT reports another crash on Highway 100 northbound from exit 3 in Edina; that's from about Vernon Avenue to Excelsior Blvd.

A stalled vehicle on County Road 101 east of 169 backing up traffic.

Southbound I-35W near County Road 10 is seeing delays with a high volume of traffic and roads down to a single lane. Some backups are happening there now, causing about a 10-minute delay.

Ryan said Highway 169 near Old Shakopee Road is congested with traffic slowed down a bit. 

A tire in the middle of the road at I-94 eastbound near Brooklyn Blvd is causing traffic to maneuver around it.

The traffic map remains green for much of the metro area, orange in a few spots. Several spots have minor delays up to about five minutes, Ryan said, but no major delays are affecting this morning's commute.
