Rondo Avenue in St. Paul ran for about two miles, from Rice Street at its western end to Dunlap Street. It lasted nearly a hundred years. When Interstate Highway 94 was built in 1964 to link Minneapolis and St. Paul, Rondo vanished. Rondo Avenue and three other streets were reduced to the status of a continuos service road along the freeway. It was renamed Concordia Avenue, after the college located beside it near Dunlap.

Rondo was once an important commercial and residential artery for the St. Paul black community. The Rondo Avenue had always been special for those who grew to maturity near it.
