After months of technical analysis, the Arizona Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration, has published two key documents as part of the environmental study for Interstate 11 from Nogales to Wickenburg.

In May of this year, ADOT and the FHA asked the public and agencies to share their comments and concerns about the I-11 environmental impact study.

ADOT Director John Halikowski said, “As we look to invest and prioritize needs to improve our state highway system, we must consider how to better connect people, communities and markets.”

A future I-11 corridor would likely follow US 93 from the town of Wickenburg north to the Arizona-Nevada line.

The next round of public involvement opportunities is scheduled to take place in late 2018.
