Artist's Description

This photo was taken on top of the Hoover Dam (Nevada/Arizona border, USA) looking out towards the Bypass Project at Black Canyon.

Hoover Dam Bypass refers to the construction of the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and connecting roads for a new route across the Colorado River for U.S. Route 93. The project links the U.S. states of Nevada and Arizona by spanning the Colorado River 1,500 feet downstream from the Hoover Dam. The entire project is expected to be completed by September 2009.1 Its cost has been estimated to be about $240 million.

The bridge and the new sections of U.S. Highway 93 will be four lanes wide. Total length of the bridge is 1,900 feet (579 m) with a 1,080-foot (329 m) main span. The roadway will be 840 feet (256 m) above the river. When completed, it will be the first concrete-steel composite arch bridge built in the United States.
