    Phil, interesting, I didn't know about it.

    The last couple times we crossed the dam it was slow bumper to bumper, but we enjoyed the view for we stopped for a while at the dam.

    But then I bet they close Hoover Dam to public vehicle traffic.

    I had seen a show on the discovery channel the other day about that bridge. It was pretty neat, a huge undertaking to say the least. It turns out the contractor under estimated the wind speed at them heights causing construction delays, putting them behind schedule and over budget.
