I-11 ShieldInterstate-11 Project Status

Package 1 (right-of-way acquisitions) is complete. Right of occupancy has been obtained for the entire project. 

Package 2B (frontage road construction and utility relocations) was advertised in fall 2013, but the work was added to Package 3 due to the discovery of naturally occurring asbestos (NOA). 

Package 3 advertised on October 29, 2014 and bids were opened on December 23, 2014. Fisher Sand and Gravel was the successful bidder. The $83 million project broke ground in May 2015. Construction is expected to last roughly 3 years.

Phase 1

Project Update

Phase 1 of Interstate 11 consists of a continuous four-lane, controlled-access, divided freeway and highway passing south of the developed area of Boulder City as described and approved in the FEIS/ROD.  The horizontal alignment begins at the Foothills Drive grade separation, crosses under the existing railroad, and continues just south to Silverline Road, for a project length of approximately 2.50 miles. A visual simulation of the Railroad Pass interchange is shown below, depicting what it might look like when complete.  View a PDF of the visual simulation of the Railroad Pass interchange.
