6:45 am
expressway. a heavy delay. a 34 minute ride from the blue route to the vine already right now. i want to pull in the waze app right now because if you're trying come in, let's say from king of prussia and you stay on the schuylkill expressway, right now it's a 51 minute ride. what you can do is take conshohocken state road, route 23, a 41 minute ride. that's a much better way to come in. try to avoid the schuylkill eastbound right now. and we can actually show you some of the speeds with that here on our big board. we're looking at at best about 13 miles an hour eastbound on the schuylkill especially heavy from belmont to the boulevard where we have that accident. but you could see how it really slows already approaching the conshohocken curve and then westbound you're no better than 15 miles an hour in that same area so really heavy. we've seen some very slow speeds now on i-95 southbound. looking at 16 miles an hour so watch for slow speeds particularly heavy approaching cottman and then near girard as well. we've had a couple of new accidents come in. this one's south broad street at allentown road. that's a new accident as well as one on frankford and academy road so a couple of accidents outer there this
