How does one tell his manager that he is late because of a traffic jam? Is it okay to say:

すみません、交通渋滞できから遅きます。

When you are in traffic jam, you would call to say

すみません、渋滞で遅れます。

or more formally

申し訳ありません。渋滞で遅れてしまいます。

When you have gotten there, you would tell your manager in the past tense

すみません、渋滞で遅れました。

or more formally

申し訳ありません。渋滞で遅れてしまいました。
