  • A contractor working on behalf of ADOT will continue the project to repave Highway 95 in Bullhead City by raising manholes, installing traffic detection equipment, fog sealing the roadway, and repainting.
  • City Street Maintenance Crews will continue to seal cracks and fill potholes along Bullhead Parkway. The project is expected to last several weeks.
  • City street maintenance crews will be applying a slurry seal to Hancock Rd from Highway 95 to Colorado Blvd and Riverview Dr from Rivera Blvd to Highway 95.

Full sections of Hancock Road will be closed while receiving maintenance, and individual lanes of Riverview Dr will be closed while receiving maintenance.

  • The Bullhead City Municipal Pool will be closed while a contractor working on behalf of the City resurfaces the pool deck and makes drainage improvements. The new floor surface will be heat and slip-resistant. The pool is expected to reopen April 30.
  • The Optimum Community Center Gymnasium will be closed while City staff and contractors remodel the building, including the installation of a new wooden floor, new doors, new air conditioning components, new ceiling tiles, and new LED lighting. The work is part of the first phase of a multi-phase project to improve the facility. Other work is also currently taking place around the facility but will not result in any closures or cancellations of ongoing programs. The gymnasium is expected to reopen to the public April 30.
  • T.R. Orr Inc. will continue working to expand the Bullhead Senior Campus Building. The new senior campus expansion will add 9,000 square feet of space to the building, including 7,700 square footage of indoor activity and meeting space and 1,300 square feet of covered outdoor patio space. Construction is expected to wrap up around August 2024.
  • A contractor will continue rehabilitating the 18-2 lift station located South of Lost Hills Dr and East of Merrill Ave. The project involves installing paneling made of Predl material to protect the well from corrosion.
  • A contractor working on behalf of Bullhead City Utilities will continue phase one of the project to install reuse piping and valves at the section 10 water reclamation plant. This will allow the City to conserve precious water by pumping grade A reuse water into the Colorado River.
  • A contractor working on behalf of ADOT is installing new street lights in various locations along Silvercreek Road as a part of a Highway Safety Improvement Project awarded to the City. Some lane closures will be in effect while crews work along the shoulder of the road.
  • City Parks Maintenance staff will continue a project to install decomposed granite around the basketball courts at Rotary Park.
