The Federal Highway Administration and the Arizona Department of Transportation have developed the Purpose and Need Memorandum to provide background information on the evolution and planning context of the Interstate 11 corridor. It also presents the overall purpose of the I-11 corridor and outlines the factors that contribute to the need for a transportation facility within the corridor study area. The Purpose and Need is a fundamental part of the National Environmental Policy Act process and provides the basis for identifying, evaluating and screening corridor alternatives. It will be a key component in selecting a preferred corridor alternative or the no-build alternative for I-11.
