Eureka! A sign that makes sense!

Okay, I just figured it out! Thanks to this MHS Visual Resource Database Image, which I had originally overlooked.

The symbol on the "Coming Soon..." billboard is the same one that was on the sign! You can see it by looking at the other photos.

So? Well, if you look closely, that symbol represents the Mississippi River as it winds between Minneapolis and St. Paul. The horizontal curving line probably represents the coming I-94, and the vertical line represents Snelling Avenue (which was, and still is, a major artery).

Wow! All these years, and I never understood it! It all makes sense now!
