State Route 95 project to resume in Bullhead City later this year

State Route 95 project to resume in Bullhead City later this year 

Improvement project between Bullhead City Parkway and Laughlin Bridge to undergo design changes before resuming

BULLHEAD CITY ‒ To minimize traffic delays from a safety-improvement project planned along State Route 95, the Arizona Department of Transportation will have significant changes in place when work resumes later this year.



ADOT started the $1.5 million project in late October but halted it due to longer-than-anticipated delays caused by narrowing to one lane in each direction on the corridor leading to Laughlin, Nevada, to set up a permanent traffic-control barrier.



After a review of the project and traffic plan, ADOT has made modifications that include allowing the traffic-control barrier to be removed when construction isn’t taking place. In addition, the majority of the work will occur during nighttime hours when traffic volumes are at their lowest.



The project will be put out to bid again due to the design modifications. The start date will be set after the contract is awarded.



When the project resumes, lane restrictions will still be required and motorists should expect some delays.



The project includes adding a raised median to SR 95 between the Bullhead Parkway and Aviation Way intersections to enhance safety. In addition, the stretch from Aviation Way to the Laughlin Bridge intersection in Bullhead City will be repaved.



There are currently no traffic restrictions along SR 95 in the area.


ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
