After investing more than half a billion dollars over the past 20 years to turn the primary route between Phoenix and Las Vegas into a modern four-lane divided highway, the state has committed another $155 million for improvements to the stretch of highway over the next five years.
Interstate 11 is projected to be a freeway stretching from the Mexican border to Las Vegas, then possibly the Canadian border. Since 2014, signs have marked U.S. 93 in Arizona as the “Future I-11 Corridor.”
“ADOT has spent years investing in the future Interstate 11 and laying the foundation for this border-to-border highway,” ADOT Director John Halikowski said. “We’re putting the pieces together today for what I-11 will be in the future. These substantial and continuing investments show our commitment to a corridor that is essential for commercial and recreational travel and also to making Arizona a better place to live and work.”
