Deck over freeways
35W and 94 have both cut through the center of the urban fabric. Cities across the world have looked at remedying this by creating useable space above freeways by decking over them to allow for construction. Buildings or parks can be built above these freeways to restore neighborhoods, provide greenspace, and increase walkability. This can be done on a trial basis between Downtown and the University of Minnesota's West Bank or in another area that would demonstrate similar benefits from being tied together.
