The Hoover Dam bypass, which includes the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, is on schedule to be fully complete and open to traffic in November. The steel box girders, concrete deck, pedestrian sidewalk and roadway barriers are completed, and the pedestrian railing, roadway work and tie-ins are in the process of being completed now. Forecasts indicate that the project will be completed on time and within the original budget.
The bridge will be open on Saturday, October 16th, 2010 to walk on, during which time it will be closed to traffic. Visitors will be able to take photographs and experience the engineering marvel in person. Visit celebratehooverbridge.com for more details.
