Rethinking I-94: MnDOT asks public to share thoughts on I-94 at June workshops

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The public is invited to share their experiences and provide feedback on Interstate 94 through the Twin Cities at any of six planned community visioning workshops scheduled for June.

The workshops, which are being held as part of the Rethinking I-94 study, will take place at five different locations within the study area between St. Paul and Minneapolis:

  • June 12, 5-7 p.m.
    Merriam Park Rec Center       
    2000 St. Anthony Ave., St. Paul
  • June 13, 5-7 p.m.
    Hubbs Center for Lifelong Learning on University
    1030 University Ave. W., St. Paul
  • June 19, 5-7 p.m.
    Hope Community Center
    611 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis
  • June 22, 5-7 p.m.
    Dayton’s Bluff Rec Center
    800 Conway St., St. Paul
  • June 28, 2-4 p.m., and 6-8 p.m.
    Brian Coyle Center
    420 15th Ave. S., Minneapolis

The feedback gathered at each workshop will be used by MnDOT to better identify and articulate neighborhood-level transportation values, issues and concerns that will help shape future transportation investment along I-94 between St. Paul and Minneapolis.

“We want to know how I-94 works for those who use it and live by it, and how the interstate affects their life on a daily basis,” said Brian Isaacson, Rethinking I-94 project manager. “What we learn at these workshops will help us build out our next steps of community engagement around transportation concepts that align with a shared vision for the I-94 corridor.”

Each workshop will focus on the I-94 corridor as a whole, as well as specific geographical areas/communities along I-94. The geographical areas of interest will coincide with the location of the workshops, which will be structured in an open house format.

The public is encouraged to come at any time, and for any length of time in the two hours allotted for each event.

There will be no formal presentations at any of the six events, and interpreters and translated materials will be provided.

Rethinking I-94 Study
MnDOT is working with partners on a two-year project to develop a vision for the I-94 corridor between St. Paul and Minneapolis. The vision will connect issues identified through a comprehensive public engagement process relevant to today and beyond. Stakeholders along the corridor, as well as MnDOT’s partners, will help define and develop an effective and efficient plan for the corridor.
