Interstate 94 reopens after wrong-way crash near Hwy. 280

Traffic was backed up for miles on I-94 westbound.

UPDATE 7 A.M.

Interstate 94 has reopened, but there were still some significant residual delays from the early morning closure. 

Original story

Drivers headed to work Tuesday morning may want to find an alternate route after an overnight wrong-way crash shut down a key stretch of a Interstate 94 in Minneapolis. 

According to MnDOT, the crash has shut down I-94 westbound from Hwy. 28 to 7th Street. They estimated that the closure would last until about 7 a.m., so while it could open any time now, the residual backs could be pretty bad. 

More to come.
