Congested Thursday morning commute

Congested Thursday morning commute

By Penny Kiryk. CREATED May 15, 2014

Thursday morning's commute ended up taking much longer than usual, especially for those heading southbound on I-235.

Two accidents involving almost a dozen vehicles near Zoo Boulevard backed up traffic all the way from 25th to Zoo for over an hour. At times, traffic was at a complete standstill.

Many drivers detoured on 25th to avoid the delay.

The accidents both happened just minutes before 8 a.m.
Minor injuries were reported.
