The Rough Road To Interstate 11

Should the federal government build a highway from Las Vegas to Phoenix? Many community and business leaders in Las Vegas believe such a road could help boost the economy in Southern Nevada. But residents in some of the communities in the path of the proposed interstate aren't so sure. They're worried about noise, traffic and the change that might occur in their towns if the road is built. So is the interstate really essential to the economic wellbeing of Las Vegas? How should planners accommodate the needs of smaller communities that could be disrupted by the project?
