Then, a crash on westbound Interstate 694 at Lexington Avenue blocked the right lane.

Later, a crash on westbound Highway 13 near Highway 169 in Savage caused significant delays.

Meanwhile, Smith said a new ramp closure could delay drivers Wednesday. The ramp from westbound I-94 to Highway 55/Olson Memorial Highway is expected to close until mid-June. Smith said to take Interstate 394 as a detour.

Drivers can also expect the southbound lanes of Interstate 35W from Highway 62 to I-94 to close Wednesday night.
