Hoover Dam Bypass OpensIt was only the beginning of this year when we published our January catalog that we marveled at the complexity of the construction of the Hoover Dam Bypass. The catalog cover showed the Hoover Dam Bypass during an early phase of construction. Now the project is complete, the road is open, and the article we spotted and accompanying pictures are worth looking at.

Officials estimate the bridge will reduce the average trip between Las Vegas and Phoenix by more than 30 minutes. The speed limit on the bridge and bypass is 55 mph.
