Las Vegas Review-Journal » Construction is underway for the first 15-mile segment of I-11 from Henderson to Boulder City, set to open by the end of this year.

The first phase in Boulder City is expected to be complete by the fall of 2018. Phase 1 will construct about 15 miles of new freeway around the southern and eastern perimeter of Boulder City, Nev., from I-515 to U.S. 93.
