A crash on westbound I-35/80 near Merle Hay Mall caused a major traffic backup during the Friday evening commute.

Two left lanes westbound were blocked between Exit 127: IA 141; North West Urbandale Drive and Exit 129: North West 86th Street (Urbandale), the Iowa Department of Transportation reports.

Iowa DOT cameras showed traffic was backed up as far as Meredith Drive.
