{Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge in Arizona}

On July 20 of 2009, both of us went with our best friends to Las Vegas for a long weekend. So we had the opportunity to visit Hoover Dam. We were in awe about the construction of the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, at 890 feet high (271 meters) with 1,060 feet span (323 meters) belonging to the highest bridges. Just click the hyperlink for very interesting photos.
Using my video camera in 2009 and we were so impressed by this huge Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge!
We always wanted to go back and see the completion of this HUGE bridge...
Construction everywhere at the time we visited the Hoover Dam in July of 2009.
Another friendly tourist offered to take a picture from both of us!
Construction of the Bridge you can see again to the left...
Here we come! On March 22, we got up at 2:30 AM in order to fly to Phoenix, Arizona and using again a free companion ticket from Delta Airline's American Express card. It would expire on March 31.
Here we are at the parking lot and we have to climb up to the bridge...
From Phoenix it took us some 4 hours driving via Highway 93, a very scenic route and we got here around 5:00 PM.
Once we climbed all the way up to the actual bridge the view was incredible!
Remember, this bridge is 890 feet high (271 meters)!
Lake Mead, the country's largest man made lake is in the back and the Colorado River underneath after it passed the Hoover Dam.
It was a long day and finally after almost 6 years we're here!
This is a four-lane bridge and there is no trembling when huge trucks pass over it.
Pieter using his Nikon and I used my iPad...
Standing on the second-highest bridge of any kind in the USA and the 14th in the world.

Very happy feeling and oh so rewarding...
Pieter captured an excellent over view with the Nikon!
Explanation about the funding of this Mike O'Callaghan - Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge 
Yes, at the end of this ramp up to the bridge (and down) there is the border of Arizona and you enter the State of Nevada.
Mind boggling how they secured those rocks for being safe.
We only had to drive about half an hour to Las Vegas, from Boulder City where the Hoover Dam is located.
We stayed at +Hyatt Place Las Vegas and went to bed real early after such a long but very rewarding day.
Time difference is 3 hours with Georgia.
This is breakfast time next morning at the Hyatt Place.

  3. Amazing! I was there as a child and am sure there's photos of our time there on family vacation. So nice that you were able to go back after 6 years. Didn't realize Las Vegas was so close. Have a wonderful day. Tammy

  5. Indrukwekkend bouwwerk, de hoogte is niet te bevatten als je erop staat. Wat een werk moet het geweest zijn om dat allemaal aan te leggen.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Inderdaad, als je erop staat heb je totaal geen idee van die enorme hoogte. Daarom heb ik ook de foto's van 6 jaar geleden getoond, dat geeft veel beter de énorme hoogte weer.
      Knappe koppen inderdaad en ook om het feilloos uit te voeren!
      Liefs,

  9. Lieve Mariette,

    Fijn dat jullie nog eens terug konden keren om de enorme brug te bekijken toen die gereed was.
    En via deze interessante blogpost kan ik ook een kijkje nemen hoe dit alles tot stand gekomen is,knap staaltje bouwkunde.
    De werkomstandigheden van de arbeiders en hun gezinnen zullen heel wat beter geweest zijn als in de tijd dat de Hoover Dam gebouwd werd tijdens de Grote Depressie, een tijd waarin constructietunnels niet geventileerd werden en veel bouwvakkers het leven lieten,helaas.

    Lieve groet en fijne zondag,
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Jazeker, dat was zeker fijn en we hebben er zó van genoten!
      Verbázend hoe ze zoiets uit kunnen werken en dan ook nog tot in de perfecte afleveren. Een enorme planning moet het geweest zijn met veel berekeningen!
      Ja, de tijden van toen zijn niet te vergelijken en over de hele wereld lieten velen het leven bij het bouwen van enorme gebouwen. Hoeveel er b.v. omkwamen bij het bouwen van paleis Versailles... etc. etc.
      Liefs en fijne nieuwe week.

  10. That's an incredible view indeed! I visited Hoover dam long long time ago...and it was a very brief stop, so I have very little memory. I have to visit there again! I love that at the border they put a sign for time zone :-)

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      When we visited Hoover Dam with a tour bus we did not have that much time either but it was worth it. Going back this time we were totally free and certainly enjoyed it. That time zone sign is unique as Arizona did not have one and they too are within Pacific Time Zone.
      Hugs,

  11. Wow dat is een indrukwekkend bouwwerk.....ik sta wel eens versteld hoe ze het allemaal voor elkaar krijgen...
    Hele mooie foto's ook, dat ruige landschap ...prachtig....
    Moest een beetje lachen met de laatste foto....dat doosje met medicijnen in het midden op tafel, met in het Nederlands...'avond'. Dus zo heel veramerikaanst zijn jullie nog niet....

    1. Beste Marian,
      Ja, indrukwekkend was het zeker en je word er inderdaad stíl van als je zoiets enorms staat te bekijken en alles naleest etc. Knappe koppen zijn het die zoiets aandurven!
      Het landschap is ontzettend wisselend en interessant, ruig. Een vier uur rit naar het noordwesten, vanaf Phoenix maar door twee verschillende soorten woestijn.
      Ja, geinig zoiets met àltijd toch nog het Nederlands wat terug te vinden is in onze dagelijkse dingen. Zolang we met z'n beidjes zijn zal dat ook blijven!
      Liefs,

  12. Liebe Mariette,
    deine Bilder sind faszinierend - atemberaubend - aber niemals würde ich
    über eine solche Brücke gehen - mir wird schon von den Fotos Angst und Bange -
    gut schaut ihr beiden aus auf den Fotos -

    bleibt weiter gesund und habt einen wundervollen Tag -

    liebe Grüße - Ruth

    1. Liebe Ruth,
      Danke aber ja, da habt ihr doch sicher auch viele Talsperrbrücken die sehr hoch sind. Ich kann dir sagen, wenn man darüber fährt kann man überhaupt nichts von diese Höhe sehen; völlig abgesperrt. Und auch diese Strecke wo man als Fussganger spazieren kann, da schaut man nur die eine Seite zum Staudamm hinunter. Gott sei Dank habe ich nie Probleme gekannt mit Höhen!
      Ich schaute bestimmt sehr müde aus da wir zum Flug um 2:30 Uhr schon auf war und es war hier 17:00 Uhr + 3 Uhr Zeit-Unterschied; also ein sehr langer Tag!
      Ganz liebe Grüsse,
      Mariette

      It is quite a view indeed and so was the entire trip up north from Phoenix, through very rough areas and two different deserts. We enjoyed it tremendously and got not disappointed.
      Thank you and hope you too had a happy Mother's Day!

    1. Beste Joan,
      Ja, dit is echt een enorm uitzicht op een wijds en groot gebied. Nederland is daarbij vergeleken zó minuscule. Maar dat is de charme van het Westen en we genoten intens van het woestijn landschap wat over 4 uur door 2 soorten woestijn ging. Deze brug behoort tot een van de hoogste en met de grootste spanwijdte. Erg indrukwekkend.

      Oh, it sure is most impressive and we both were in awe. It was an extremely long day, traveling all the way and driving the 4 hours but it made me oh so happy! Next day I felt fresh again and we enjoyed this trip. Thanks for visiting; I too got way behind in blog visits...

  19. Liebe Mariette,
    den Hoover Dam habe ich schon einmal in Oceanphoenix Blog gesehen, der derzeit leider geschlossen ist

    http://oceanphoenix.net/

    Und ich erkenne den Unterschied. Zu der Zeit sah es dort noch anders aus. Vielleicht kann Ocean, die noch bei Twitter und FB aktiv ist, Deinen Post sehen.
    Das waren bestimmt eindrucksvolle Tage für Euch und sicher auch anstrengend und viel zu Fuß zu laufen.

    Liebe Grüße auch hier

    1. Liebe Sara,
      Den Hoover Dam an sich hat sich aber überhaupt nicht geändert sondern nur das da oben, ganz hoch diese neue Brücke dazu gekommen ist um den langen Weg durch den Bergen um einigen Meilen zu kürzen. Nein es war aber nicht viel zu Fuss, nur die Treppen hoch um ganz oben auf die Brücke laufen zu können und nach 4 Stunden im Auto ist man schon ganz froh mal im Freien laufen zu können.
      Es war sehr eindrucksvoll und wir sind beide froh das wir da waren nach 6 Jahren.
      Ganz liebe Grüsse,
      Mariette
