The Colorado River Bridge
Although we live in Nevada we get all our water from the Colorado River, which stretches from Colorado to California and defines the southeast border of Nevada. The Hoover Dam Bypass project will reroute US highway 93, the road from Las Vegas to Arizona, from crossing the river directly on the Hoover Dam to crossing 900 feet above the river! Here you can see the beginnings of what will be the Colorado River Bridge which, when completed, will span approximately 2000 feet.
