US 93 Cane Springs Improvement Project

US 93 Cane Springs Improvement Project


Project Cost: $80.6 million

The Arizona Department of Transportation has initiated the final design phase of the US 93 Cane Springs Improvement project north of Wikieup.

Major elements of the project include:

Widening a 4-mile segment of US 93 from a two-lane undivided roadway to a 4-lane divided highway between mileposts 106 and 110.

Constructing two new bridges over Cane Springs Wash and removing the existing bridge (milepost 109).

Improving and/or installing drainage and sediment-control facilities, including culverts, pipes and ditches.

Reconstructing the intersection turnout at Upper Trout Creek Road.


This project continues ADOT’s long-term vision of transforming this highly traveled route into a 4-lane divided highway through the entire 200-mile segment of US 93 in Arizona between Wickenburg and the state line.

The US 93 series of projects is a priority for ADOT and has significantly improved the state highway system to move people, goods and services more efficiently.

A draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for US 93, Wikieup to I-40 was prepared in June 2000 and a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was issued in April 2001. Nine previous roadway widening projects have been completed between Wikieup and I-40. This project is the final segment of improvements to be constructed on US 93 covered in the EA.

Need for the project

Improvements are needed to increase capacity of US 93 to meet projected traffic volumes and current design standards.

Design and Construction Timeline

The project is currently in the final design phase, which is scheduled to be completed in late spring 2024. Construction is expected to begin in fall 2024.
