I-11 FOR LAS VEGAS
Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), are pleased to present the final I-11 Las Vegas Metropolitan Area Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study Report.
The final PEL report analyzes two potential routes for Interstate 11 (I-11), western (I-215 and CC 215) and central (I-515 and US 95) and identifies a recommended corridor through the Las Vegas metropolitan area, between the Henderson Interchange and the vicinity of Kyle Canyon Road (SR 157) on US 95.
The final PEL report recommends the central corridor (currently I-515 and US 95) for future I-11 interstate highway designation through the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Based on evaluation criteria and extensive assessments, the central corridor alternative was identified as the best performing corridor in the study.
You are invited to read the final I-11 PEL report, including the study team’s findings and recommendations on our resources page.
Copies of fact sheets or other public meeting materials are also located on our resources page. Please contact Cassie Mlynarek, NDOT Public Involvement Specialist, at (702) 232-5288 if you would like to request special accommodations to view materials in an alternative format.
Background and History
I-11 is envisioned as a 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. The process began in 2012, when the U.S. Congress identified US 93 from Phoenix, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada as a high priority corridor as part of the Moving Ahead for Progress Act (MAP-21) and designated it as the future I-11 corridor.
Purpose and Need
The I-11 corridor through the Las Vegas metropolitan area has numerous benefits including consistent signage, enhanced wayfinding, improved connectivity and goods movement via a multimodal passage, thus improving mobility and supporting economic vitality.
The final I-11 PEL Study report is now available and can be viewed on the resources page. Next steps include formal interstate designation by AASHTO and the design and construction of updates to signage along I-515 and US 95 to reflect the change, subject to the availability of funding.
Study Limits Map
A western and central corridor alternative were analyzed for the future I-11 through the Las Vegas metropolitan area. The final PEL Study identified the central corridor as I-11 between the Henderson Interchange and the vicinity of Kyle Canyon Road (SR 157) on US 95.
