In partnership with the Arizona Department of Transportation, construction on Mohave County’s first roundabout is underway, and is scheduled for completion in spring 2017.
In 2015 Mohave County secured Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program funding for the design and construction of a roundabout at the intersection of County Route 1, Golden Shores Parkway, and Oatman Highway in Topock/Golden Shores. Community input followed during a study phase and public meetings helped develop and define the project’s final design.
“Mohave County is pleased to deliver its first and 100-percent federally funded roundabout construction in Golden Shores, which developed under a community centered focus and will enhance travel safety and mobility for commuters and visitors traveling through the Colorado River communities.” Mohave County Public Works Director Steven P. Latoski.
