I-11 FOR LAS VEGAS
NDOT, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), are pleased to present the draft PEL report.
The draft PEL (Planning and Environmental Linkages) report analyzes two potential routes for Interstate 11 (I-11), Western (I-215 and CC 215) and Central (I-515 and US 95), through Las Vegas and identifies a recommended corridor through the Las Vegas metropolitan area.
The draft PEL report recommends the Central Corridor (currently I-515 and US 95) for 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 review the draft I-11 PEL report, review the findings and recommendations, and submit feedback to help identify any additional critical issues that should be considered in the analysis of the recommended corridor for the final PEL study.
Attendees that may require assistance or special accommodations to view the virtual meeting, or to find out how to view hard copies of the draft PEL report, please contact Cassie Mlynarek, NDOT Public Involvement Specialist, at (702) 232-5288. Hard copies of fact sheets or other materials are located on our resources page.
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 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 draft I-11 PEL Study is available on this site and will be available for a 30-day public review and comment period, beginning Thursday, June 23 and ending Friday, July 22, 2022, at 5 p.m. After the conclusion of the public review period for the draft PEL Study report, a final PEL Study report will be published to NDOT’s website.
Study Limits Map
A western and central corridor alternative have been analyzed for the future I-11 through the Las Vegas metropolitan area. The final PEL Study will identify an I-11 corridor between the Henderson Interchange and the vicinity of Kyle Canyon Road (SR 157) on US 95.
