Unlike most of my fictional freeways, Fictional MN 594 is a real-life proposal. Called the "I-94/US 10 Connector" or 94-10 Regional connector by some, the freeway is a plan by MnDOT to build a high-speed/high-capacity connection between I-94 near Clearwater and US 10 near Clear Lake, to facilitate a heavy seasonal and increasingly heavy commuter connection between the two routes. Existing MN 24 between Clearwater and Clear Lake currently serves as the primary connection, but is only 2 lanes and is heavily congested. Studies initiated in the mid-1990s concluded with the plan for a new 4-lane river crossing downstream of MN 24 with a freeway connection between I-94 and US 10.
MN 594 is my idea of a route number that could be used for the connection, as it could be considered a spur off of I-94.
Map will be part of a future update.
