Minimal travel delays expected
November 14, 2013

PHOENIX – In an effort to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions, the Arizona Department of Transportation will install new wildlife fencing along a 12-mile corridor of State Route 95 from just north of Lake Havasu City to south of the Interstate 40 traffic junction (mileposts 189-201), beginning next week.

The $1 million project, a partnership between ADOT, Arizona Game and Fish Department, Federal Highway Administration and U.S. Bureau of Land Management, includes removing the existing fence and replacing it with a four-foot-high fence designed to contain wild burros on the west side of SR 95, where there is access to water in the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge. New cattle guards will also be installed.

Work is scheduled Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. While most of the work will take place off the roadway, motorists are advised to slow down, and be aware of construction workers and equipment within the work zone.

The project if expected to be completed in spring 2014.

If you have questions about the project you can email ADOT at or call the agency’s Project Hotline at 1-855-712-8530.
