Catch Me in a New Documentary on TPT this Weekend!

[The I-94 bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis.]
If you're watching TV Sunday night, tune in to Twin Cities Public Television and watch Part II of the Rethinking I-94 documentary. I haven't seen it yet, but apparently I'm in there. I did a sit-down interview with the crew, and participatd in a televised focus group.

Yikes! It's really a challenge to "re-think" something as taken-for-granted and heavily used as an intra-city interstate. I did my best to share a critical on this piece of collective infrastructure and I'm not sure how it will look.

Here's the plug:
This Sunday night, May 7, TPT (Twin Cities PBS) will premiere Part Two of our two-part documentary about Interstate 94. The half-hour program will begin at 7 p.m. and air on TPT MN.

Part Two of the documentary, entitled Interstate 94: Today and Tomorrow, focuses on the here and now as it relates to I-94 through the Twin Cities, as well as our continuing work to engage with communities along the interstate in an effort to develop a comprehensive, community-based vision for the corridor. If you are unable to watch this Sunday night, the program will air at the times listed below and will be available on our Rethinking I-94 project website starting next week.  This website is located at the following address:

If you have not seen Part One of the documentary, or would like to see it again prior watching Part Two, you can do so by visiting the Rethinking I-94 project website noted above and scrolling to the bottom of the page. Part One of the documentary, entitled Interstate 94: A History and Its Impact, focused on the construction of I-94 in the middle of the 20th Century and the affect it had on the communities it bisected.

It'll be online also. Part I is here.
