Driving time

I must be doing something wrong - Google maps will not give driving time/mileage from Kingman to the new bridge at Hoover Dam. What is the mileage and driving time? Is there still construction on Rt 93 between the dam and Kingman?

AZ511 shows no construction or delays on Hwy 93. It is about 1 hour 20 minutes from Kingman to the bridge.

Neither Google Maps or Yahoo maps has the bridge in their database as a landmark for search. So you have to use Hoover Dam.

Google thinks that part of Hwy 93 is a private or restricted road, so shows a route over to Hwy 95 on the other side of the river. I think there is a problem with Google maps at present as I have gotten odd results on other searches, such as Phoenix-Puerto Penasco for the N Mexico forum ..... Google shows driving all the way to Yuma and San Luis Colorado and doesn't show Hwy 86 from Gila Bend on its map. Its error reporting is also not working.

Thanks! Finally just used Boulder City. Yes, Google maps is currently very unhelpful in that area.

I just tried it four different ways and it did not work right. From Kingman to the dam,to the bridge,to the Hacienda Hotel near the bridge and lastly to Mc Carran Airport.

Every time it has me exit at Willow Beach Road, from Hwy 93 which is one way in, one way out or Pierce Ferry Road.

I did that route a few weeks ago.There was no construction between the dam and Kingman.There was construction between the Hacienda Hotel up to Boulder City.One side of the road.No delays.

I was looking forward to taking a picture of Latex Larry, the manequin cop in the police car on the hill near Boulder City.They moved it to do the construction work. No Larry!

There were roadworks on 93 between Wickenburg and I40 though and I think they will last some time.

Thanks, Tet, I'll check that out.

We're thinking the best use of our time is to drive all the way to Pahrump after leaving Sun City. Second day we'll stay at Furnace Creek, third day drive to Henderson after leaving the park, so we have plenty of time to walk the bridge the last morning.

Pahrump's tackiness was amusing. We chose the wrong place for dinner - the new Denny's has some bugs to work out! We would have had steak at one of the casinos but if they allowed smoking we would have had problems.
