U.S. Route 93 (US 93) is a north–south US Highway in western Arizona, eastern Nevada, and central Idaho in American Truck Simulator. The route is separated into two sections: The first section runs from US 60 in Wickenburg to US 26 and SH-75 in Shoshone. The second section runs from US 20 and US 26 in Carey to Salmon. US 93 connects northern and eastern Nevada and central Idaho with Las Vegas and southern California. It is the only direct connection between Arizona and Nevada. In real life, US 93 runs 1359 miles (2187 km) from Wickenburg, AZ, to the Canadian border north of Indian Springs, MT.

Course[]

US 93 begins in Wickenburg, AZ, where it intersects with US 60 at a roundabout. It runs northwest through the mountains of the Sonoran Desert at the edge of the Colorado Plateau to Interstate 40, with which it runs concurrent to Kingman. There the 93 runs past a southbound weigh station and along the Black Mountains, which it passes through before crossing the Colorado River and the state line. The 93 crosses the Colorado via the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, which, spanning Black Canyon, stands 890 feet (270 m) above the river, making it the highest highway bridge in the US (second highest bridge overall) and the world's highest concrete arch bridge. Just upriver from the bridge is the Hoover Dam, a massive hyrdoelectric dam built from 1931-36 and a signifcant landmark; impounded by it is Lake Mead.

After entering Nevada, US 93 begins running concurrent with Interstate 11 and Interstate 515, and soon runs through Las Vegas, where it intersects with US 95 and Interstate 15. After a short concurrency with I-15, the 93 sets off across the Great Basin, a vast, mountainous desert with few settlements. After intersecting with NV 375 the highway passes through Mazany Creek, a fictional town located roughly where Caliente is in real life. This town, which offers travel services, is possibly named after Václav Mazaný, a former employee at SCS Software, and features animal topiaries and giant rubber ducks that bob up and down near the truck stop. Soon afterwards the highway passes Panaca (where it meets NV 319) and Pioche, and meets with US 6 and US 50 at Majors Place, where the three highways run concurrent over the Schell Creek Range via Connors Pass (7729 ft) to Ely, where they split up. At Lages Station the 93 meets with US 93A, which heads to Wendover, while the 93 continues to Wells, where it intersects with Interstate 80. From there the 93 heads to Jackpot, where, under the Jarbridge Mountains, it crosses into Idaho.

Soon after entering the Gem State, US 93 passes through Twin Falls, where it intersects with US 30. Out of Twin Falls the 93 crosses the Snake River Gorge via the Perrine Memorial Bridge, which, at 486 feet (148 m) high, is the eighth highest bridge in the US. Two overlooks provide views of the bridge, the gorge, and Shoshone Falls, the southbound overlook featuring a viewpoint. After intersecting with Interstate 84 the 93 passes through Shoshone where, concurrent with US 26, it continues to Carey through a gap in the road. At Carey the 93 runs concurrent with US 20 to Arco, where it breaks from the 20 and 26. Running along the Lost River Range (the summit of which is Borah Peak, the highest point of Idaho), the highway passes through Mackay and past the Mackay Reservoir to Willow Creek Summit (7160 ft). Over the summit, the highway winds through the narrow Grand View Canyon to Challis, where it meets ID-75. The 93 then runs along the Salmon River through the Northern Rocky Mountains to Salmon, where, in the north of town, the highway currently ends in the shade of the Beaverhead Mountains.

History[]

  • In update 1.5, which changed the map scale from 1:35 to 1:20, new sections were added to the existing route to accommodate the new map scale, including the Scenic Byway south of Ely. The at-grade three-way junction with NV 375 was re-oriented from a US 93 TOTSO to US 93 going straight through the junction, and the at-grade three-way junction with US 6 and US 50 south of Ely was added. The section from Interstate 80 in Wells to Jackpot was completely reworked.
  • In update 1.32, the junction with US 60 was changed from an at-grade three-way junction to a roundabout.
  • In update 1.38, Panaca and the at-grade three-way junction there with SR 319 were added. The at–grade section through Las Vegas was moved to Interstate 15 and a new freeway section concurrent with US 95 south of Interstate 15, including the diamond interchange with Tropicana Avenue. The diamond interchange with Interstate 15 was separated into a diverging diamond interchange with Interstate 15 and a single-point diamond interchange on the Interstate 15 section with the previous section of US 93 on Cheyenne Avenue. Also on the Interstate 15 section, the trumpet interchange of Interstate 15 and US 95 was changed to a "Spaghetti Bowl" interchange of Interstate 15, US 93, and US 95. The at-grade three-way junction with a minor road by the Hoover Dam was removed.
  • In the initial version of the Idaho map expansion DLC, the section of US 93 from Jackpot to Salmon was added.
