WisDOT gets weird on race

This is from WisDOT's draft environmental impact statement for its proposed $1.9 billion North-South I-94 expansion plan.

“...the study-area freeway system connects Chicago to Milwaukee, both of which are ‘minority majority’ communities.”

Excuse me? What's this supposed to mean? Is it relevant? Why? How many majority white communities are connected by that freeway? Is that number, which is bound to be astronomically higher than two, relevant? If so, why wasn't it quantifed in the EIS?
