Have you ever driven from Las Vegas to Kingman? It just takes a while driving through Boulder City traffic and around the Lake Mead area so that trip is significantly further away from Las Vegas. It is 103 miles using MapQuest. Pahrump is 2/3 of this distance.

I've been to the Hoover Dam in 2014, drove through Boulder City, stayed in Vegas and drove through Kingman a few times. Never been to Pahrump. It makes sense for people that live in Vegas to drive to Pahrump than to Kingman since it's a shorter distance.

The bypass, when it’s finished will change all of that

Now Nevada can claim they are the only place in the whole world to have voted a dead pimp into office. More power to them.

Boulder City Bypass. It’s part of the new Interstate 11 connecting Phoenix to Vegas.

Interesting to note that Nevada's transportation department is currently constructing Interstate 11, and one section of it is already completed. ADOT hasn't broken ground on Arizona's I11, and doesn't even have an exact plan worked out as to where it's going to go near the Phoenix area. Big difference between NDOT and ADOT, especially when it comes to construction. NDOT gets things done, and ADOT stalls & makes excuses.

They’ve already built huge sections of it into US93

ADOT is also suppose to extend highway 89A (Pioneer Pkwy) westbound all the way to US-93 (future I-11) up in Prescott and remake that portion to Prescott Pkwy. They'll eventually upgrade CR-10 that goes by Skull Valley and upgrade CR-96 by Hillside and Yava to 4 lane highway standards. Presently, those two county roads are horrible to drive on, especially the hairpin curves and steep inclines. The purpose is to give people the option instead of driving north on 89 to Ash Fork and take I-40 west to Kingman.

Where? It's partially divided between Wickenburg & Kingman with still plenty of two lane segments. The part of 93 north of Kingman is fully divided, but none of these sections have on/off ramps or anything which resembles a true interstate highway. Also, these divided segments were built periodically over the years before I11 was even a thought. ADOT still hasn't finalized a route where I11 will begin in Maricopa County. Compared to NDOT, they are way behind the times on this project.
