August 2023

ARIZONA – The Arizona Department of Transportation is advising Mohave County-area drivers to prepare for overnight lane restrictions over the next year as a 23-mile pavement project has begun on State Route 95 between Courtwright Road and Bullhead Parkway (mileposts 227-250).
Construction will begin at Courtwright Road in Mohave Valley and progress north to Bullhead Parkway. Motorists should be prepared to slow down in the work zone and expect brief delays while the following restrictions are in place from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday evenings through Friday mornings:
SR 95 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction. Only a portion of the project area will have the restrictions in place, beginning at Courtwright Road. The restrictions will be ongoing until construction is completed in summer 2024.
The project elements include:
Removing the top layer of pavement and replacing it with new asphalt.
Replacing the curb and gutter, sidewalk ramps, pavement markings and other related work. 
This is the first of two paving projects starting on SR 95. The second pavement project will be between Sara Park and Interstate 40 (mileposts 176 to 202). ADOT will provide additional information on the second project as soon as construction information becomes available. For more information on the SR 95 Sara Park – Interstate 40 project, visit the ADOT web site.
ADOT will provide more information about project schedules and potential traffic impacts as information becomes available. Stay informed of traffic restrictions before they occur by subscribing to GovDelivery and receive notifications sent directly to your email.
