Bypass bridge to Hoover Dam

A New Panorama at an Old Marvel

BOULDER CITY, Nev. — Generations of photo albums are filled with images of children squinting in front of the enormous canyon here, one of the greatest engineering feats in America’s history.

Now, an architectural epilogue to the Hoover Dam is nearly complete: a 1,060-foot, twin-rib concrete bridge floating majestically over the Colorado River. The bridge will provide the first new viewing spot accessible by foot since the dam was built over seven decades ago and, at long last, traffic relief for those who have to cross the dam.

This is really neat; when I went to Hoover Dam two years ago, the road was partially finished-- just sort of hanging out in mid-air at the time. I took a bunch of pictures of it, but alas, I took even more pictures on top of those!



The body betrays and the weather conspires, hopefully, not on the same day.
