Money bottleneck with I-11 Plans

I-11By Hubble Ray Smith | Kingman Daily Miner

The future of Interstate 11 boils down to funding, including $88M to build an interchange at U.S. Highway 93 and Interstate 40 in Kingman – and that’s not going to happen any time soon, Arizona Department of Transportation district engineer Mike Kondelis said.

The existing interchange doesn’t have the capacity to support daily traffic and is the last remaining bottleneck in the I-11 corridor, which would connect Phoenix to Las Vegas and become a major trade route from Mexico to Canada.

During peak hours, an estimated 1,045 vehicles make the turn from U.S. 93 onto eastbound I-40, with cars and trucks often backed up to Coyote Pass. About 950 vehicles exit I-40 onto northbound U.S. 93.
