Cool Features

US 93 passes by the Hoover Dam at the Arizona/Nevada border. Before 2010, US 93 crossed directly over the Hoover Dam which included narrow lanes, many hairpins, dangerous curves, and poor sight distances. Additionally, before 9/11 in 2001, this was a major trucking route, however truck traffic was banned and redirected to AZ 68, NV 163, and US 95 in order to safeguard the dam from potential threats. This route was eliminated with the construction of the new Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge over the Colorado River.

The mile markers on US 93 start in the north and increase as you go south; unlike the standard, which is opposite.

US 93 is a part of the Future Interstate 11 corridor.

There's a whole lot of nothing along US 93 in Arizona... including the ghost town of Nothing, AZ.

Near the Nevada state line, US 93 has some very nice scenic views due to the more mountainous terrain in the area.
