Send an email to MnDOT & Rethinking I-94 Project Decision Makers

MnDOT is now in the process of determining the future of the I-94 corridor.

Take action by asking Minnesota Department of Transportation leadership and Rethinking I-94 project decision makers to support the Twin Cities Boulevard.

Your message will be sent to MnDOT leadership and Rethinking I-94 project staff as well as the elected officials, agency heads and decision makers that make up the project’s Policy Advisory Committee. 

We are asking for a public commitment to:

Near-term:

  • Support a joint application by the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul for a USDOT Reconnecting Communities planning grant to study the Twin Cities Boulevard vision
  • Amend the Rethinking I-94 purpose & need documents to give fair consideration to a highway-to-boulevard conversion

Long-term:

  • Convert I-94 within the Rethinking I-94 project area into a multi-modal boulevard and reconnected street grid, with construction beginning by 2027.
  • Adopt strong community benchmarks and policies and work with project partners to integrate them into the project. This includes placing remaining right-of-way and adjoining parcels of public land in a publicly held land trust. These policies will ensure that the benefits of the transformation will prioritize those who have been harmed by I-94 and that displacement and gentrification does not result.
