Clark County wants city to pay additional $4.5M for bridge

TERRI HARBER, The Daily NewsMay 22, 2019

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

The matter will be up for discussion and possible action today during the City Council meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council Chamber, 1255 Marina Blvd.

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