If you're heading to work this morning you'd be advised to check the traffic situation before you leave.

On Wednesday night, southbound Highway 100 between W 50th St. and W 44th St. was reduced to a single lane as part of the ongoing reconstruction of the busy road.

Already at 6 a.m. Thursday morning there was congestion, and that's likely to only get worse as more people make their way to work.

Here's a look at the situation at 6:30 a.m. on Google's live traffic monitor, which shows traffic is extremely slow on the stretch between I-394 and W 50th St.

There have also been early morning delays on eastbound I-94 at Maple Grove, with overnight construction work causing traffic to slow to around Broxton Lane, KSTP reported.

Highway 100 southbound will be down to a single lane until Friday night, when the whole road closes between I-394 and Highway 62 for the weekend. It will reopen again with two lanes each-way at 5 a.m. Monday.

People have been on Twitter complaining about the traffic problems.
