State Route 95: Interstate 40 to State Route 68

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration have been evaluating two potential north-south corridors for the future realignment/relocation of SR 95 in northwestern Arizona from south of I-40 to SR 68.  SR 95 is the primary north-south highway in western Arizona, linking the communities of Bullhead City, Arizona, and Laughlin, Nevada, with other towns and communities to the south along the Colorado River, such as Lake Havasu City, Parker and Quartzsite.  While the goal to facilitate regional traffic flow through northwestern Arizona remains valid, the studies are being suspended due to funding constraints.  Work completed to date has been archived for future use once funds are available to re-initiate the study.
