Join us as we rethink the role of the highway in our neighborhoods!

Other topics may include pedestrian and bike safety, neighborhood history, and other transportation issues. Come with questions, thoughts, and ideas!

We will move at a conversational walking pace with multiple stops along the way. Please let us know if you have any questions or accessibility concerns.
We’ll be beginning outside Lake Monster Brewing, at 550 Vandalia St., by the big pink X sculpture. Lake Monster has bike and car parking and is accessible via the #87 and #63 buses and Green Line light rail.
MnDOT is currently taking public input on high-level options for the future of I-94 in part of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, including along the south edge of St. Anthony Park. The Our Streets Minneapolis group has published an explainer about the MnDOT survey, at tinyurl.com/94surveyopinion, highlighting the options that come closest to fitting with the Twin Cities Boulevard concept, explaining why freeway expansion is problematic, showing how the survey allows for expressing additional ideas, and including aspects specific to South St. Anthony Park. Their post also contains the link to MnDOT’s survey.
