Paving Nevada's Future
Currently, the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) has an Online Public Meeting available from July 31 – August 31, 2020 and your feedback matters regarding the Interstate 11 (I-11) Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
The Project is now in its scoping phase. During this phase, the project team will begin identifying and developing corridor alternatives, identifying potential impacts to our community’s resources, and identifying project-related concerns through the proactive partnership of various agencies and local entities.
The goal of the NDOT I-11 Tier 1 EIS is to identify a preferred I-11 corridor extending through the Las Vegas metropolitan area, between the Arizona border on US 93 and the vicinity of Kyle Canyon Road on US 95. A Tier 1 EIS will be prepared for the project to evaluate potential corridors with the intent to obtain a Record of Decision (ROD) from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) that will select a single corridor along which to build future I-11 projects.

Background and History
The I-11 Corridor is envisioned as a new major north-south multimodal corridor that will provide enhanced transportation mobility and goods movement while creating a foundation for robust economic vitality for the region. NDOT, in cooperation with the FHWA, is advancing the development of the I-11 Corridor Tier 1 EIS through the Las Vegas metropolitan area.
Purpose and Need
The I-11 Corridor through the Las Vegas metropolitan area has numerous benefits including providing enhanced connectivity and goods movement via a multimodal passage, improving mobility, and supporting economic vitality. The purpose and need of this project will continue to evolve and develop as public participation, stakeholder engagement, and agency partner feedback progresses.
The I-11 Tier 1 EIS originated in 2019 and is scheduled for completion in 2022 with the issuance of a Final EIS and Record of Decision (ROD) from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Currently, preparation is underway with technical staff from the various jurisdictions and agency partners involved to review the potential alternatives.
