Interstates

Interstate 11

Interstate 11 is a critical piece of multimodal infrastructure that will support and connect the economies of Arizona and Nevada. It also could be connected to a larger north-south transportation corridor, linking Mexico and Canada. The purpose of I-11 is to provide a high-priority, access-controlled transportation corridor that has the potential to enhance movement of people and freight, facilitate regional connectivity, trade, communications and technology.

Interstate 10

Sun Corridor – Interstate 10 (I-10) is the southernmost east-west, coast-to-coast Interstate Highway in the United States. It stretches from the Pacific Ocean at State Route 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) in Santa Monica, California to Interstate 95 in Jacksonville, Florida.

A major expansion of Interstate 10 is presently underway that will provide additional lanes in each direction through central Arizona.

Interstate 8

Interstate 8 (I-8) is an Interstate Highway in the southwestern United States. It runs from the southern edge of Mission Bay at Sunset Cliffs Blvd. in San Diego, California, almost at the Pacific Ocean, to the junction with Interstate 10, just southeast of Casa Grande, Arizona. In California, especially from eastern San Diego County to points east, Interstate 8 runs very close to the United States-Mexico border. At points in eastern Imperial County, the border is no more than two miles (3 km) south of the Interstate.
