Possibly the worst freeway in the Twin Cities except maybe Crosstown 62. It certainly has the two most dangerous interchanges in the metro, filled with weaving and tightly spaced interchanges, at I-35E and also at a huge interchange with MN 51 and US 10. Also has a crappy interchange at I-35W and and a useless dual-signage route with I-94, which is its parent route anyway.
"The fastest way to Minneapolis from here is I-694 to I-35W."
"Let's take Highway 100 or 169 to I-394 instead, because I don't want to get killed."
