Clark County asks Bullhead City to pitch in more for new bridge

By TERRI HARBER News WestMay 22, 2019

BULLHEAD CITY — Clark County is looking to Bullhead City for financial assistance — $4.5 million, specifically — to pay for a share of the bridge that would run across the Colorado River and provide a second link between the city and Laughlin.

The matter was up for discussion during Tuesday’s Bullhead City Council meeting, which began after the deadline for this edition of the Laughlin Nevada Times.

Clark County officials are making the request after the Laughlin Town Advisory Board decided last fall not to support the project as currently envisioned: A four-lane structure between Bullhead Parkway on the Arizona side, a bridge that’s 724 feet long running above the river leading into a three-mile extension of Needles Highway.
