“Save Don’t Pave” and “Trains Not Lanes” were the rallying cries of South Minneapolis residents who opposed plans developed by the Minnesota Department of Transportation between 1986 and the early 2000s to expand Interstate 35W. What was at stake? Who would have been most affected? Did organized opposition influence construction plans?
Join A Public History of 35W for a panel discussion with political and community leaders who advocated for transportation alternatives, brought awareness to automobile pollution, and pushed back against the demolition of housing for freeways.
