Hey Rob I understand st paul is in your realm of expertise. I have a load going up there for monday. I come up 94 and my exit is just past the 35. I’m going to westrock. Any advise on the best routing right now is appreciated.

Is the address 2250 Wabash ave in St Paul? We had a driver a few blocks over at Midway Cold Storage yesterday and he didn't make any mention of things being out of whack around 0800. My family that still resides in the area said that the rioting has died down substantially. In St Paul the majority of businesses burned were at Corner on Snelling Ave and Minnehaha Ave. If the address above is correct you'd be around the Black X our driver was at green X


I haven't heard of any issues on 94 but my employer just wanted us to avoid the area if possible because on 35w North of 94 they had been throwing bricks off overpasses near the bridge going over the river last weekend. The radio made no mentions of any traffic issues related to protests yesterday other than side streets around the state capital quite a bit east of this location. Things could change this weekend but I think it'll be ok due to the state attorney general taking over the investigation and the other 3 officers involved are now facing criminal charges that could get them 40 years each. Unless things change this weekend I don't think you'll need to take any special precautions and travel should be business as usual. What time of day are you expecting to be up there?

Yes the wabash address is where I am going. I should be in there 17-1800 sunday evening. I figure I’ll just stay at the customer. Deliver first thing monday morning and get gone. Our tank wash is about 13 miles south of the customer so that should be ok. I appreciate the info.

Not a problem, I'll be calling my sister this weekend and I'll post an update if it sounds like things are sketchy. The state capital is just north of I-94 near 35E in St Paul so I'd think you're more likely to run into traffic issues in that area if anything as that's where the protests seem to be occurring but they've stayed off the interstate in that area.
