A series of public meetings will be held in the next two weeks to gather feedback on possible routes for the proposed Interstate 11.

Arizona and Nevada departments of transportation are taking the information they have spent the last year gathering about the possible routes to the public.

The highway would connect Mexico and northern Nevada by way of Phoenix and Las Vegas.

“We’ve got a number of recommended alternatives that we’re going to be presenting to the public starting this week,” said Laura Douglas, spokesperson for the Arizona Department of Transportation. “The public will be able to come out to three meetings in Arizona and two meetings in Nevada next week, and be able to learn about what we’ve done with the study, where we are right now, and where we’re going.”

Four of the 7 possible routes through Southern Arizona would travel through the Tucson area. The others would go through Ajo or Yuma.
