Kingman is already a key transportation hub for both commercial and private motorists, a designation that might become more profound as a study regarding a proposed interstate to link Phoenix and Las Vegas nears its end. The final public meetings to gather comments have been scheduled.
I-11 meetings start next week
The three public meetings to gather public comment on the proposed Interstate 11 and Intermountain West Corridor Study are scheduled as follows:

Tucson - 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Tucson Electric Power Community Room, 88 E. Broadway Boulevard.

Phoenix area - 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. June 25 at Palo Verde Energy Education Center, 600 N. Airport Road in Buckeye

Las Vegas area - 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. June 26 at Fifth Street Historical School, 401 S. Fourth Street in Las Vegas.

The virtual public meeting will run from Wednesday to July 18. The public can go online to and review the latest information and provide feedback.

KINGMAN - People interested in the proposed Interstate 11 that would link Phoenix to Las Vegas - and ultimately Mexico to Canada - can participate in one of three public hearings this month or in an online virtual meeting that will last from Wednesday through July 18.

The Arizona and Nevada departments of transportation began a feasibility study two years ago and it is nearing its completion, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

This will be the public's final chance to comment before the draft Corridor Concept Report is compiled. Designed to provide vision for the corridor, reinforce the justification for building a new multiuse interstate corridor and define a plan to move forward.

The report will outline four chapters. They are the need for a high-capacity corridor to link economies; alignment recommendations that link population centers and connect communities; the economic value that might come from investing in the project and a call to action.

The two state transportation departments stress the importance of continued collaboration.

The proposed interstate was included in the current federal surface transportation bill. Funding has not been identified.

Until Mexico gets it's act together this entire idea needs to be put on hold and all trade with Mexico needs to be CUT OFF!!
Every American should totally boycott Mexico and demand congress cut funding to Mexico and the central American countries sending all these people into the U.S. Illegally!!
Cut trade with Mexico and millions in aid.
Stores should remove every single product from Mexico Including the grocery stores!!!

Obama and Michelle should have to have to be changing diapers and paying out of their pocket for med. care for these people until they are sent back to their own countries,
Including the children!!

The U.S. sends millions and millions to these corrupt countries and they don't even vaccinate their children. If parents can come up with enough money to pay coyottes to smuggle people, then they should use that money to keep and care for their children!!!

This is just another Obama created crisis and WH knew months ago it was coming!!

Impeach NOW!!!!!

Meeting in Tucson because I-11 will connect from the Nogales, Mexican border all the way to Canada.
Makes sense to start from beginning to ending of it.

Until immigration laws are enforced and our border secure I don't think we should build any highway that links Mexico and gives it an economic boost. Especially when Mexican officials are as corrupt as are and refuse to release Sgt. Tahmoorisse!

Stop whining, you can go to Vegas if you have important information to contribute. Maybe you need to ask yourself why there is not meeting in Kingman.

If this hwy. is between Phoenix and Vegas for right now, Why is there a meeting in Tucson and not here. Between the two areas affected. I guess if you don't live in the valley you don't live in Arizona.
