Riverside Resort & Don Laughlin - Opinion on Proposed, New Bridge

Laughlin, Nevada

On December 20, 2018, the Riverside Resort Hotel and Casino and Don Laughlin released the following letter regarding a proposed, new second bridge between Laughlin and Bullhead City. 

The text/content of the above letter is:


To Whom It May Concern: 
With the recent news and debates concerning the building of a third bridge between Laughlin and Bullhead City, I have been asked multiple times what my opinion, and the opinion of the Riverside Resort and Casino is with respect to this issue.

As I am sure you are aware, I built and donated the first bridge that connects Laughlin and Bullhead City which was a huge necessity and as such, could possibly see some benefits to building a third bridge in that it could provide an alternate route of travel should the existing  bridge become damaged or deemed inoperable, and would provide Laughlin residents more access to medical facilities in Arizona. That being said, there is also the alarming factor that has recently come to light, which is the increased cost of the bridge and the obvious disproportionate allocation of those costs that Laughlin would incur compared to Bullhead City. It is my understanding that some residents of Laughlin feel that the money proposed for the bridge would be better used for other projects that would benefit Laughlin more than a third bridge.

So, at this time, I stand neutral on the issue of whether a third bridge should be built or, for that matter, any other improvements that might be proposed for Laughlin in lieu of a bridge.

The one thing that I can say is that I have great relationships with both Laughlin and Bullhead City and hope for the benefit of both Cities, that this matter can be resolved in a timely manner as there has already been so much time and effort put into this issue.
