MnDOT to host first of 8 meetings Wednesday for I-94 project

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is hosting eight public meetings in August and September to answer community questions regarding the Rethinking Interstate 94 project alternatives.

MnDOT’s Rethinking I-94 project is the agency’s long-term effort to engage those who live and work along the corridor between Marion Street and Highway 55 with a focus on communities impacted by the initial construction of the freeway, which includes St. Paul’s Rondo neighborhood. CLICK HERE for additional details about the project.
