Currently a bridge is being built across the Colorado River to bypass the road that takes traffic over the Hoover Dam. To follow the progress, check out their website I had a friend pass along some pictures, albiet from January, but the one I’ve included here shows some of the massive scale of this project (Thanks, Debbie!). We always tell our clients that there will be delays in crossing over the dam because of security checks and traffic.

The planned completion of the bridge and associated road construction is June 2010. So another year of delayed traffic is ahead of us, but you still get to see the spectacular progress on the bridge and the engineering marvel that is the Hoover Dam.
