The Metropolitan Council has awarded six contracts totaling $161,000 to community-based organizations to engage people in MnDOT’s Rethinking I-94 Study.

Contracts have been awarded to the following organizations:
The organizations will execute their respective engagement projects throughout the next year. They will work closely with MnDOT, the Council, and each other to learn and discuss engagement practices that work best.
