Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Man Made Items

Hoover Dam BridgeThe 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. (Source:Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    1. I’m not sure how much of the mountain they actually destroyed but it really is something to see. They have pedestrian access which, unfortunately has prompted numerous suicides already.

          1. So you should be. Tsk! [M.R. wags admonitory finger]
            You’re only allowed to make comments like that when what the previous person wrote invited it. Hang on, that won’t work – too subjective.
            Well … look back on your traditional heritage and ask yourself “devo essere o serio o stupido?”. [grin]

            1. I do most of the cooking in my house and my wife cleans up the mess I make. She would be considered the real author of my previous comment because she says it all the time to me. And I think she’s serious. I would never call her stupid!
