July 14, 2014

PHOENIX – As the Interstate 11 and Intermountain West Corridor Study nears completion, the Arizona and Nevada departments of transportation are encouraging community members to provide their input on the draft Corridor Concept Report by July 18.

It’s easy to provide feedback through a virtual public meeting set up at i11study.com. All the meeting materials are provided online, including a narrated presentation and a comment form.

Three public meetings were held in June and the month-long online virtual meeting launched on June 18 to gather comments for the draft Corridor Concept Report, a document that will outline the vision for the I-11 corridor, reinforce the justification for building a new multiuse interstate corridor and define an implementation plan to move the project forward.

The two state transportation departments have been working together since the summer of 2012 on the Interstate 11 and Intermountain West Corridor Study, which includes detailed corridor planning of an interstate link connecting the Phoenix and Las Vegas metropolitan areas, while extending the corridor through southern Arizona to Mexico and potentially north to Canada.

The Interstate 11 and Intermountain West Corridor Study is a two‐year, multiphase, high‐level study examining the feasibility, benefits, opportunities and constraints of a proposed new interstate highway corridor. The study is expected to be completed this summer. Funding to construct this new corridor has not been identified. In addition to the Arizona and Nevada departments of transportation, other study partners are the Maricopa Association of Governments, Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, Federal Highway Administration and Federal Railroad Administration.
