Public Asked to Share Input on Proposal for Interstate 11

ADOT's preferred route calls for a new corridor west of Tucson.

After years of discussion about building a corridor that would help commercial traffic travel from Nogales to Nevada, the public has something to see. The Arizona Department of Transportation released an environmental impact statement about the route it's recommending for an Interstate 11 that would span 280 miles from Nogales to Wickenburg. ADOT also hosted a series of public hearings in communities neighboring the proposed environmental study area to solicit feedback and share information. I-11 study manager Jay Van Echo joined Lorraine Rivera in studio to address some of the concerns raised so far and discuss the project's future.

You can view ADOT's Interstate 11 Corridor Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement here and submit your feedback online here.
