ADOT Begins US 93 Widening Project Near Wickenburg 

by Pleasant View

The Arizona Department of Transportation has begun a project near Wickenburg to transform another 5 miles of US 93 from two lanes to four-lane divided highway.

The work is part of ADOT’s long-term vision to transform the entire 200-mile section of US 93 from Wickenburg to the Hoover Dam bypass into a modern four-lane divided highway. In the past several years, ADOT has invested nearly $500 million in projects that have widened and improved US 93.

The $51 million project getting underway near Wickenburg will upgrade US 93 between Tegner Street and Wickenburg Ranch Way. Construction is expected to continue for about two years and includes:

  • Raised center medians
  • Frontage roads
  • Roundabouts at Rincon, Cope, Vulture Mine and Scenic Loop roads
  • Lighting, drainage systems, erosion control and landscaping

The project is between mileposts 194 and 199. About 70 percent of this stretch is in Yavapai County and 30 percent is in Maricopa County.

In the initial phase of the project, motorists should expect temporary lane closures and other restrictions from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday evenings through Friday mornings. No restrictions will be scheduled during the day, weekends or holidays.
