With the I-11 & Intermountain West Corridor Study complete, the I-11 efforts now move to the next phase, with projects and studies continuing in both Arizona and Nevada.
Arizona is continuing the process through a Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Study to identify a Selected Corridor Alternative between Nogales and Wickenburg, Arizona.
The Interstate 11 Draft Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement is expected to be published in early April 2019, followed by six public hearings planned for late April into early May. The dates, times and locations of the public hearings will be finalized and available soon at I11study.com/Arizona.
In Nevada, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is leading the effort to complete I-11 from US-95 to US-93 near the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, approximately 12.5 miles (Phase 1), while the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is constructing the portion of I-11 from Railroad Pass to US-95, approximately 2.5 miles (Phase 2). Both phases will be built simultaneously beginning in the spring of 2015 with construction expected to be complete in 2018.
