Hoover Dam and Bridge

Hey all! Welcome back! We've all been a little busy, sorry for the abscence! Here is a picture of the Hoover Dam and the new bridge they are building to bypass the dam. They are someof the coolest architectural and engineering feats of the southwest! Both are huge projects, one created the largest man made lake in the U.S. (Lake Mead). The bridge was started in response to the attacks of Sept. 11, to create a bypass around the dam, which supplies electricity and water to Las Vegas, Boulder City and much of Southern California and Arizona.
