Hoover Dam - Colorado River - Lake Mead.

 

The new bridge (see upper left of picture) is designed to alleviate traffic congestion running across the Hoover Dam. The Colorado River Bridge is in the final stages of being completed. Once finished, it will be one of the longest concrete arch bridges in the world.

Spanning the Black Canyon, the new bridge will support a four-lane highway and provide a new route between Phoenix, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada. When finished, it is expected that over 17000 vehicles will use the bridge on a daily basis.

As of now, traffic goes along the top of the Hover Dam, which was originally an access road during the dam's construction, but this has recently been deemed unsafe. Anway, we'll still cross over to Nevada on top of the dam later on. The bridge itself is expected to be finished the next few months.
