BOULDER CITY, NV (FOX5) -

Another stretch of Interstate 11 was scheduled to open to drivers Thursday morning.

The 15-mile portion of the interstate bypasses Boulder City, taking drivers from The Railroad Pass Casino to the Hoover Dam area.

Plans for the I-11 have it eventually connecting Las Vegas and Phoenix, and someday continue north to Canada.

People who live in Boulder City were split on the approval of the bypass plan, with some happy traffic will be diverted off city streets and others concerned that less drivers could lead to less business for city shops.
