[VIRTUAL] I-35W and Minneapolis: Community Impact

January 20 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Approximately 25,000 residents were displaced by the construction of I-35W that went between Crosstown, 2nd Ave and Stevens Ave in South Minneapolis. The public works construction project began in 1956 and was completed in 1967. Greg Donofrio, director of the U of MN Heritage Studies and Public History Program, and U of MN public historian Denise Pike have done extensive research on the building of 35W and are gathering stories from displaced residents. They will share their findings.

This program will be held on Zoom. We will send all who are on the LHHSG email list a link to join the Zoom session. If we do not have your email address, please call 612-926-0646 or email contact@lindenhillshistory.org and give us the email address where you’d like the link to be sent, so that you can participate. Everyone is welcome.
