I-40/US-93 West Kingman TI DCR & PEL

Arizona Department of Transportation | Kingman, Arizona

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

West Kingman TI serves as a primary link between Phoenix and Las Vegas. Traffic at this interchange is extremely heavy on weekends and holidays. EPS Group developed interim and ultimate recommendations to resolve this condition by developing design concepts for a fully-directional interchange between I-40 and US 93. Access control, impacts to local businesses, numerous washes, historic and prehistoric features, and difficult terrain further complicated the design effort. In addition, significant public involvement efforts were required to address local concerns and develop project consensus among the key stakeholders (i.e. ADOT, City of Kingman, Mohave County, FHWA, and BLM). A draft EA was completed for this project, but due to funding limitation it was converted into a PEL document to preserve the outcomes for future funding availability. An Interstate Change of Access report was also completed as part of this project.
