PHOENIX -- For over a year, the Arizona and Nevada departments of transportation have corroborated on the Interstate 11 and Intermountain West Corridor Study.
The study includes "detailed corridor planning of a possible high-priority interstate link between the Phoenix and Las Vegas metropolitan areas." There is also the potential to extend the corridor as far north as Canada and as far south as Mexico.
Over a series of five public meetings this month, the results of the preliminary analysis and a range of alternatives will be presented. The public will be allowed to "view the recommended alternatives" from the initial evaluation and screening process, prior to the study moving forward.
Each of the five meetings will focus on a specific segment of the proposed corridor.
The meetings are as follows:
• Phoenix Metropolitan Area: Oct. 8 at the Avondale City Council Chambers: 11465 W. Civic Center Drive in Avondale, AZ
• Northern Arizona: Oct. 9 at the Mohave County Public Works Building, Turquoise Room: 3715 Sunshine Drive in Kingman, AZ
• Southern Arizona: Oct. 10 at the Pascua Yaqui Reservation's Albert J. Garcia Auditorium: 7777 S. Camino Huivism in Tucson, AZ
• Northern Nevada: Oct. 16 at the Carson City Community Center, Bonanza Room: 851 E. William St. in Carson City, NV
• Las Vegas Metropolitan Area: Oct. 17 at the NDOT District I Main Training Room: 123 E. Washington St. in Las Vegas, NV
