[POSTPONED] I-35W: Community Impact
April 23 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
This program has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will look at rescheduling when things have settled down.
I-35 begins in Laredo, Texas and ends in Duluth, Minnesota, splitting into east and west legs twice: at Dallas/Fort Worth and at Minneapolis/Saint Paul. The stretch of I-35W through South Minneapolis is the focus of this presentation by University of Minnesota historians Greg Donofrio and Denise Pike. Much has been written about the destruction of Rondo Avenue for I-94, but no one has told the story of I-35W’s effects on the Southside communities — until now.
