UPDATE! MnDOT tells me it's actually cornmeal that spilled out of the big rig on Hwy 169 NB to I-494 EB. About another hour before the ramp reopens. The Washington Ave/Marth Rd ramp to I-494 EB may need to stay closed longer for add'l clean up. https://t.co/wiagwePlXs pic.twitter.com/i9lOeUxYZ8— KSTP Traffic (@kstptraffic) July 13, 2021
