A new report highlights the enormous community benefits of highway removal and points out major flaws with MnDOT’s evaluation process. Send an email today to ask key project decision-makers to fix the Rethinking I-94 process before it is too late.

We are seeking public commitment to the following actions:

  • Prioritize the impacts on highway-adjacent neighborhoods, like pollution, health disparities and stolen generational wealth when evaluating project options
  • Create a cross-jurisdictional working group to implement anti-displacement and community benefit policies and study how highway land could be repurposed
  • Add a “restored network” option with fewer lanes to the studied project alternatives to maximize the opportunity to repurpose land for new housing, businesses and parks
  • Fix inaccurate traffic models and incorporate land-use changes into future modeling
  • Extend the project area to connect into the downtowns and add a portion of Highway 280
  • Improve transparency and community engagement

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

Join us in contacting decision-makers.

Take action by emailing key decision makers and standing up for reparative justice.
