SR 68 Pavement Preservation Project

May 2022 Update

The Arizona Department of Transportation has postponed a project to replace  pavement along 15 miles of State Route 68 from State Route 95 in Bullhead City to just west of Golden Valley.

Prior to the original May 13, start date, engineers on the project team determined the need to make adjustments to the design plans for the project. Design plans help ensure a successful and safe highway improvement project to best serve Arizona drivers.

After adjustments to the design plans are made, ADOT will re-advertise the project and announce the new project date.
