The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will hold another public information meeting regarding the I-11 Intermountain West corridor which will connect Las Vegas valley to northwestern Nevada.

In a release from NDOT, it explained that, “In 1991, a new road connecting international trade through the American West was federally designated. Developed into I-11, a section of the new interstate is nearing completion in Boulder City. The future I-11 will generally follow U.S. 95 between northwestern Las Vegas and I-80 in western Nevada.”

NDOT began holding public meetings in March to gather community input on more specific corridor alternatives within the U.S. 95 vicinity.

Those March meetings allowed NDOT to evaluate and rank each corridor alternative based on established evaluation, screening and scoring criteria.

I-11 is envisioned as a limited access, four-lane divided interstate designed to safely accommodate future traffic needs, the release states.

The Hawthorne meeting will be held on Aug. 7 from 4-7 p.m. at the Hawthorne Convention Center. For those unable to attend, a live broadcast will be held on NDOT’s Facebook page on July 24 from 2-5 p.m.

“The future I-11 will not only further connect our state, but the entire West. It will bring enhanced mobility, traffic safety, freight and other opportunities for Nevada,” NDOT Director Rudy Malfabon stated.
