The Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge spans the Colorado River between Arizona and Nevada. It opened in 2010, taking 7 years and approximately $240 million to build. The bridge was the first concrete-steel composite arch bridge built in the United States, and it incorporates the widest concrete arch in the Western Hemisphere. At 840 feet (260 m) above the Colorado River, it is the second-highest bridge in the United States, following the Royal Gorge Bridge. It is also the world’s highest concrete arch bridge. The bridge is located approximately 30 miles (48 km) southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, and carries U.S. Route 93 over the Colorado River. It was the key component of the Hoover Dam Bypass project.
