Phoenix to Kingman via US 93

Hello all,

Am wintering in Phoenix and will leave in a couple of weeks for the northwest. Would like to use US93 (thru Wickinburg) to get to Kingman. It's been years since I've driven the route between PHX and I-40. I remember some fairly turney-twisty roads. Did they straighten that road? I'm driving a 40 ft Class A.

I don't know where you are in the Phoenix area but many times we've taken Hwy 74 west out of the Cave Creek area to Hwy 60 into Wickenburg, then 93 toward Kingman. It's a very pleasant, scenic route although weekends are busier if you can avoid it but not bad.

We drove the road in June 2014. While you won't have a problem driving a 40' rig on the highway, it was a fairly slow drive. It is kind of winding twisting and some of the route was on normal width highway with no paved shoulder with ups and downs and curves.

You are lucky, definitely take 74 to Wickenburg. For everyone else, Bell road and US60 is now closed in all directions until November for construction and has a big detour (also under construction - figures!)

Is that Bell Rd in Surprise, AZ (Phoenix) or in the Wickenburg area? Is US-60 totally closed, or just Bell Rd?

I drive through there every few days. Bell is closed but, Grand Ave (US60) is open. US 60 is restricted to 2 lanes each way. There may be closures on US 60 at night or weekends. The Bell road bypass is not recommended for large RV's. Project is expected to completed April 2017 .
