Public input sought for proposed Interstate 11

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The public has been given the opportunity to offer input on the proposed Interstate 11 and Intermountain West Corridor Study.

The Departments of Transportation for Arizona and Nevada will be hosting an online feedback site for public input this month.  Beginning today those interested in offering input on the study will be able to do so online, after first viewing a short presentation.

Since the summer of 2012 both the Arizona and Nevada transportation departments have been working on this project - a possible interstate link between Phoenix and Las Vegas metropolitan areas; with the possibility of extending the corridor to stretch from Canada to Mexico.  Congress recently designated the future I-11 corridor as part of the latest surface transportation bill – Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).

Alternatives for the route between Mexico and northern Nevada have been studied and the current plan is open for public comment.  Online feedback on the Level 2 Analysis can be submitted to the end of the month, but general comments on the entire I-11 project can be submitted any time by clicking here http://i11study.com/wp/?page_id=621

The initial study on this project is expected to be complete by the end of 2014; funding for the road has yet to be determined.

    It may be bad news for a bear spotted several times in an area in Rio Rico the last few weeks, state wildlife workers may have to put it down.  However, they may not have to kill it, IF neighbors change their ways.
