Newest Leg Of I-11 Set To Open Saturday

The Nevada Department of Transportation says the next section of Interstate 11 will open Saturday morning.

The opening is five days earlier than originally planned.

The two-mile-long northbound stretch of freeway runs from Foothills Drive to the U.S. Highway 93 interchange in Boulder City.

The lanes are part of the $83 million first-phase of Interstate 11 with the remaining 12.5-miles scheduled to open by October.

This phase of the new highway is expected to relieve congestion and enhance commerce between Nevada and Arizona.
