State Route 95: Interstate 40 to State Route 68 Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement Study

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration are currently evaluating two potential north-south corridors for the future realignment/relocation of SR 95 in northwestern Arizona. SR 95 is the primary north-south highway in western Arizona, linking the communities of Bullhead City, Arizona, and Laughlin, Nevada, with other towns and communities to the south along the Colorado River, such as Lake Havasu City, Parker and Quartzsite. The corridors begin approximately two miles south of I-40 near Topock and extend north to SR 68 near Bullhead City, totaling approximately 42 miles. The possible realigning or relocating of SR 95 is considered necessary to facilitate regional traffic flow through northwestern Arizona.

Next Steps. Stay Informed. Participate.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the recent public scoping period, which closed June 25. The feedback we received — from individuals just like you — is essential to identifying the preferred corridor alternative. We encourage your continued participation in the scoping process by planning to attend a public hearing in late 2014, and subscribe to the e-newsletter to stay up to date.
