What do you think about Interstate 11 — the proposed highway that would link the Phoenix and Las Vegas areas (and possibly Mexico and Canada)? If you feel strongly about the idea one way or the other, now is your chance to have your opinion heard. The Arizona and Nevada departments of transportation are holding three public meetings this month regarding the I-11 study. They are:

Tucson Area: June 18, 6 to 8 p.m. (presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.), Tucson Electric Power Community Room, 88 E. Broadway Boulevard, Tucson

Phoenix Area: June 25, 6 to 8 p.m. (presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.), Palo Verde Energy Education Center, 600 N. Airport Road, Buckeye

Las Vegas Area: June 26, 4 to 7 p.m. (presentation begins at 5:30 p.m.), Fifth Street Historical School, 401 S. Fourth Street, Las Vegas

If you can’t make it to any of these meetings, a “virtual meeting” will be available from June 18 through July 18 on the study’s website, www.i11study.com.

    what Arizona needs is more desert and fewer roads. the wildlife would be appreciative……

    The Junction in Kingman from Vegas to I-40 stinks! Its a joke for us who live here just to be able to get to work, because of the traffic. They need to do something to help us out here….. =)

    Phx to Vegas interstate – long over due!!!

  4. As a yearly visitor to both Phoenix and Las Vegas I think great, but I reserve judgement as I am not a resident.
    I am not caught up in any traffic to and from work or doing business so respect those that need to do just that.
    Also as long as it does not impact on the natural beauty of such a beautiful landscape such as Sedona. and the natural desert around.

    I think they should construct a highway and passenger rail along the same route.

    Yes build the road to vegas, please!

  7. Sisco

    This is a plan for further development in an environmentally sensitive region, in a state where there will be no water for development.

  9. I enjoy the ride on Hwy. 89 through the desert, the Joshua Trees, the, saguaros. It is a beautiful drive. I understand it is dangerous with the number of trucks and visitors between phoenix and Vegas. I am concerned y the affect if will, the presumably additional traffic. We are so busy getting somewhere, we forget to enjoy the trip. Don’t we have enough interstates and isn’t it time to start protecting the smaller roads?

    We don’t need another stupid freeway! It will cause more environmental harm than we already have, and that’s the last thing we need is more ecological destruction, build a bullet train instead, they’re better for the environment!
