MnDOT to release set of I-94 alternatives during Monday’s policy advisory committee meeting
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is expected to release its initial set of alternatives for I-94 through St. Paul and into Minneapolis on Monday, and the agency wants to hear what community members have to say.
MnDOT’s Re-Thinking 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.

Some groups have advocated for a 21-acre land bridge to be a part of the redesign plans as part of an effort to reconnect to the predominantly Black neighborhood.
Another theme from residents is the creation of a safer space for pedestrians and bikers, according to MnDOT.
The project is still in the planning phase with construction not slated to begin until 2027 at the earliest.
A policy advisory committee will be meeting virtually at 2 p.m. CLICK HERE to RSVP for Monday’s meeting.
