US-93 Wickenburg Bypass
Project Card
Tegner St to Wickenburg Way - New 4-lane divided highway TRAC # H582501
RTP Phase 1 Project Description The US-93 Wickenburg Interim Bypass project included construction of a new bridge to carry US-60 traffic over the Hassayampa River and the construction of a 1.5-mile four-lane roadway between the downtown area and the west bank of the Hassayampa River. Included in the project were roundabouts at the north and south ends of the bypass.
Project Benefits US-93 is a vital transportation link between Phoenix and Las Vegas and is part of the CANAMEX Corridor between Mexico and Canada. Prior to completion of the bypass, traffic had to use narrow local streets that were not designed to carry today's traffic volumes. Congestion and backups, particularly on holiday weekends, were frequent. The bypass has eliminated the congestion in downtown Wickenburg while continuing to provide access to Wickenburg residents and businesses.
