7:50 am
you can see the flashing lights under the right shoulder, and you need to scoot over one lane and slow down considerably and backing traffic up on 40 west. a live look at the commute and we'll zoom into the west side of raleigh and it slows through chapel hill and wade and beyond the solid red line indicating the stop and roll traffic. the latest sensory said that the ride will take at least 16 minutes and steadily climbing. it's a mess. as you can see, the outbound side of wade is merging and the delays build into the beltline. outbound suede backing up with delays towards 440 with delays on and off from the capital boulevard out to wade avenue.
