Franks Praises Designation of I-11 Connecting Phoenix/Las Vegas

Press Release

Location: Unknown

Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-02) today released the following statement, after successfully advocating for an amendment securing Interstate designation for I-11, the stretch of interstate that will now ultimately connect Phoenix and Las Vegas -- the only two metropolitan areas in the nation with populations in excess of a million that are not connected by the interstate system:

According to Franks, "Having worked for several years now toward the construction of this much-needed stretch of interstate, I am pleased to see I-11 finally receive Interstate designation.

"The benefits of I-11 will not be limited to my district. Indeed, the route will serve as a vital artery for commerce that will allow Nevada and Arizona to remain the fastest growing states in the nation, thereby benefitting the economies of the entire Western region of the United States."
