Hoover Dam bypass bridge reaches milestone
The trip between Phoenix and Las Vegas, two of the largest, fastest growing cities in the country, is a frustrating experience in endless traffic lights, long stretches stuck behind slow moving trucks and RVs and a constant search for some short cut to make the typically hot trip a little less tedious.
The good news is that the Hoover Dam bypass bridge over the Colorado River (also known as the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge or Colorado River Bridge), is only a few weeks away from completing the 1,060 foot long arch connecting the Arizona and Nevada sides.
This weekend's Las Vegas Sun has current photos that are more up to date than the bridge's official web site. The bridge is scheduled to be completed in Sept. 2010.
