It Is Open

On our trips west in May of 2009 and again in February of 2010, one of the many things that I wanted to do was drive across the Hoover Dam.  Construction was underway for the new bridge across the gorge which would allow the traffic to move in a more efficient manner.  The new bridge finally opened to traffic yesterday.  So in honor of that, here are some photos from our trips.

From 2009:

From 2010:
I think I'm going to have to return to drive across that new bridge:)

THat looks like it is a far way down...I'm not so sure you would be able to get me across that bridge.

How cool that you have some of the construction phase shots. I bet the view from the bridge is really neat.

Oh. My. God. I'd love to go over that bridge too but someone else would have to drive while I threw up.
