NDOT Interstate 11
The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) welcomes your input on the corridor alternatives developed as part of the Alternatives Analysis Study and Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) effort for the proposed Interstate 11 (I-11) between Las Vegas and I-80.

Please review and comment on the corridor alternatives, and provide feedback on any known issues or opportunities. These corridor alternatives were developed based on input from prior studies, prior stakeholder coordination, and technical analysis conducted to date.

Comments are due Friday, April 13th, additional information can be found here.


A joint study by NDOT and the Arizona Department of Transportation, the I-11 and Intermountain West Corridor Study (IWCS) was completed in 2014. In Northern Nevada, a high level of analysis was completed to recommend that I-11 make a connection from Las Vegas to points north along the western side of the state.

The purpose of this study is to build on the recommendations of the I-11 and IWCS by developing and evaluating specific corridor alternatives linking Las Vegas with I-80, and documenting issues, constraints, and opportunities in a PEL document, to lay the groundwork for future NEPA studies

Rebuild With US.
Rebuild and Reimagine America's Infrastructure
Guiding Principles
Sustainable Investment

Together, cities and our federal partners must address the existing core infrastructure backlog, reestablish long-term funding and use new technologies that will serve America's cities for the next 100 years.

Locally-Driven Projects

Local leaders, from cities large and small, are best positioned to identify where infrastructure needs are greatest and should be given a stronger voice in how limited federal dollars are invested.

Federal-Local Partnership

Cities are already paying their fair share and need a steady federal partner to fund existing national programs and make significant capital investments for the long-term benefit of the economy.

Expand Revenue Tools

Cities should be given more flexibility to raise revenues and use innovative financing techniques while protecting existing tools, such as tax-exempt bonds, to drive regional investments that tie into the national network.

Rebuild and Reimagine

Cities are leading the way in building intermodal, sustainable and interconnected infrastructure networks that support a modern economy.  Congress must invest in cities'vision to rebuild and reimagine America's infrastructure.
