On The Road - To Vegas

Looks like some changes are afoot at the Hoover Dam. Maybe they call this thing a fly over? Anyway US 93 that runs from Central Arizona into Nevada is getting a brand new look at the dam. The first pic shows the existing two lane road that winds down into the dam area then exits over the mounatins into the Nevada side. Arrow indicates a new four lane fly over.

Pretty impresive structure, as is the Hoover Dam, but I've been through this area before so it was nothing new. Second pic shows the arch bridge under construction on the Nevada side with suspended cables providing support as well

And the bridge under construction with both sides gaining ground until a connection is made.

Welcome to the playground in the desert...

Lodging arrangements for the week is the Imperial Palace on the Strip. Not impressed but I didn't need anything pricey. Good thing I brough a coffee maker along. Thanks Brad! Heck, that flea bag motel in Cordele, Ga for $ 29.00 is better than this place. At least it had a fridge and a good TV cable selection. But then I suppose folks here don't want ya hangin' out in the room all the time. Go spend some dough in the casino!

Reason for visit? Surfaces flooring convention.
