ADOT to begin SR 95 improvements between Bullhead City and Laughlin

Motorists should expect delays during nighttime hours

BULLHEAD CITY — Motorists traveling overnight on State Route 95 between Bullhead City and Laughlin, Nevada, need to prepare for delays and allow extra travel time as the Arizona Department of Transportation begins an improvement project near the Arizona-Nevada state line on Monday, Oct. 26.

As part of a $1.5 million project, ADOT will construct a raised median on SR 95 between the Bullhead Parkway and Aviation Way intersections to enhance safety along the corridor. In addition, the stretch from Aviation Way to the Laughlin Bridge intersection in Bullhead City will be repaved.

Work will take place nightly from 6 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Friday. While one travel lane will remain open in each direction, motorists should be prepared for delays of up to 15 minutes.

The first phase of work will include setting up traffic control barrier and removing the existing asphalt.  

The speed limit will be reduced and drivers should be alert for construction workers and equipment.

The project is expected to be completed in May 2016.

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.
