LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A proposed interstate linking Las Vegas and Phoenix is still years and billions of dollars from reality, but the governors of Nevada and Arizona have unveiled signs to mark their dream.
 
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and Nevada Congressman Steven Horsford met at the Hoover Dam on Friday to unveil signs that will be posted along the proposed Interstate 11.  
 
Nevada and Arizona are linked by U.S. 93, but the corridor missed out on being in the original interstate network because the region's population exploded after the road-building blitz that began in the mid-1950s.
 
The states' transportation departments haven't officially estimated the cost of building an interstate-quality road through the 290-mile stretch, although informal projections range from $4 billion to $10 billion.
