U.S. 93 - Boulders Section,
Mohave County, Arizona

Designer:
URS Greiner, Phoenix, AZ
Logan Simpson Design, Tempe, AZ

Contractor:
Sundt Construction, Phoenix, AZ

The purpose of the project was to increase traffic capacity by widening the roadway and improving safety elements. The parkway is a designated scenic route that cuts diagonally across northwest Arizona from the Phoenix metropolitan area to I-40, east of Kingman, AZ. The natural areas-wildlife and landscape-were preserved, and the native vegetation was reestablished.
