TUCSON, Ariz. - The Arizona Department of Transportation is still working to identify a Southern Arizona corridor for the proposed Interstate 11.

Opposition continues to grow from Avra Valley residents, who learned they could lose their homes and businesses along the route.

ADOT tells KGUN9 they're still more than a year away from identifying the corridor -- or none at all.

Currently, ADOT is conducting a Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement. Findings will be shared with the community at a series of public meetings.

There were four public meetings scheduled in Southern Arizona next month, but ADOT confirmed those meetings were canceled due to the government shutdown.
