The proposed I-11 would stretch from Nogales to Wickenburg before connecting with U.S. 93, but officials say it’s too early to say whether it would bulldoze any homes in its path.

Jody and Art Arnold built their home on the fringe of metro Phoenix 55 years ago, but now fear a potential trade route between Mexico and Canada could pave over it.
Their home, off a stretch of MC-85 in Buckeye that most are likely to travel on the way to Gila Bend or on to San Diego, falls within a corridor identified for the long-discussed Interstate 11.
Transportation officials don’t yet know how many homes are in the proposed freeway’s path. They’ve identified a 2,000-foot-wide corridor that would be narrowed to about 400 feet once a final path is selected.
