Yeah!      The Bridge is OPEN !

Traffic began flowing on Tuesday night, October 19, 2010.  The Hoover Dam Bypass bridge is operational for travel.  No more long inspection lines, no more slow twisty roads, trucks are welcomed, and it's FAST!  Nine years in the making, stalled with accidents and red tape, the bridge will bring a whole new dimension to visiting Lake Mead.   Just like the Hoover Dam, good things are worth waiting for.  The bridge is officially named Mike O'Callaghan - Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.  It is expected to have 21,000 vehicles pass over per day on average, 3000 of which will be trucks, formerly banned from crossing Hoover Dam since 9-11.

Conceived in the late 90's, the construction contract was awarded July 2001.  After much engineering, construction officially started Jan 2005.  Originally slated for completion in 2008, this was delayed due a tower accident Sept 2006.  High winds knocked down two construction towers used to support building the arch.

The completed bridge will have a huge effect on visitors wanting to see things on both sides of the state line.

1.  Arizonans can visit Boulder Basin and Las Vegas much quicker and easier.

2.  Californians can visit Temple Bar Marina easier, potentially staying in Boulder City each night, 50mi away (1hr drive).

3.  Willow Beach Marina on the Colorado River is easier to access for Boulder Basin visitors from California and Nevada.

4.  Las Vegas visitors can visit the Grand Canyon much faster.
