Freeways like I-94 and I-35 displaced people, divided communities, and had environmental consequences, which continue to affect the natural environment and the health of those living near them. In this discussion, A Public History of 35W moderates a conversation about how people in the Rondo neighborhood of St. Paul are responding to social and environmental justice questions raised by freeway alignment projects in the past. A Public History of 35W is a community-collaborative oral history and research project on 35W in South Minneapolis from the University of Minnesota’s Heritage Studies and Public History Program.
