Photo-documenting the Colorado River Bridge / Hoover Dam Project


Photo by Jamey Stillings


Photographer Jamey Stillings has been following the Colorado River Bridge / Hoover Dam Bypass project since March of 2009 when he first encountered the construction site. Since then, he has photo-documented the project and the construction of the future new vehicle route diverting traffic around the dam, a 1900 ft bridge.  This new bridge requires thew creation of a 1,060 ft arch spanning the Black Canyon between Arizona and Nevada. When the project is complete, it will be the longest concrete arch span in the US and the fifth longest in the world.
