Crashes on eastbound I-94 near Albertville are causing huge delays on the Tuesday morning commute.

An initial multi-vehicle crash was reported in the bypass lane – where I-94 splits due to ongoing road construction – just before 6 a.m.

And while this was being cleared, another crash was reported northwest of the initial incident.

As of 7:16 a.m., the Minnesota Department of Transportation estimates 30-plus minute delays on the interstate – though at one point MnDOT was warning of delays of more than an hour.

Drivers heading east urged to get off I-94 at Monticello and head to Highway 10.

There's no word yet on injuries or when the road will be cleared.
