Roads receiving new milepost signage include the following: · Arizona Strip Area: Antelope Valley Road, Craigs Ranch Road, Mt. Dellenbaugh Road, Mt. Trumbull Loop, Mud Mountain Road, Navajo Trail, Pakoon Springs Road, Yellowstone Road · Hackberry Area: Antares Road, Hackberry Road · Dolan Springs Area: Cottonwood Road · Golden Valley Area: Shinarump Drive · Wikieup Area: Back Road, Bogles Ranch Road, Burro Creek Crossing, Chicken Springs Road, Signal Road, Seventeen Mile Road, Highland Road · Yucca Area: Alamo Road, Butch Cassidy Road, and Planet Ranch Road This initiative aids motorists and emergency service providers in providing location reference information critical to incident and crash response.
