Las Vegas Eyes Punta Colonet Mega-Port, Wants Highway to Phoenix to Handle Cargo

According to today’s Las Vegas Sun, that city’s planners are keen on building a four-lane highway, Interstate 11, to connect Vegas and Phoenix, the two largest cities in the country not linked by an interstate highway. The importance of this project is the pending construction of a mega-port at Punta Colonet, Mexico. “China is negotiating with Mexico for the development of a deep-water port at Punta Colonet in Baja California and the proposed I-11 is viewed as an important link to transport goods arriving at that port to the western United States,” the paper reported. The expert who spoke on the subject at a Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority meeting was Tom Skancke, president of The Skancke Co. Ltd. and a transportation consultant to the Authority.
