There are some significant backups on southbound I-35W in south Minneapolis on Wednesday morning after a semi crash.

Three lanes of the interstate are blocked off after the semi appeared to have struck the median near 50th Street.

It means the freeway has been reduced from 5 lanes down to 2, causing delays on the freeway and a knock-on effect to local roads.

There are also delays on northbound I-35W after a crash that was reported at 46th Street.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says the delay southbound is around 17 minutes, and 13 minutes northbound.
