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

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

The $1.5 million 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.

After work started in late October, ADOT halted it due to longer-than-anticipated delays caused by narrowing to one lane in each direction to set up a permanent traffic-control barrier.

After reviewing the project and traffic plan, ADOT has made modifications that include using a traffic-control barrier that can be removed when construction isn’t taking place. In addition, most work will occur at night when traffic is lightest.

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.

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.
