The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Politics and Freeways: Building the Twin Cities Interstate System.

Author: 
Cavanaugh, Patricia.

A history of the changing politics and participants related to decision making about and construction of the interstate system in the Twin Cities metro area from the 1950s to the 1990s. Using case studies of construction or expansion projects on Interstates 94, 35W, 35E, 394, and 335, the report identifies three distinct eras in the history of freeway construction in the Twin Cities, and offers conclusions about how politics and the role of various participants shaped the debates about these projects. Includes appendices.
