Dam Bypass Project
Boulder City, Nevada – In the spring of 2005 we were awarded a subcontract by Obayashi Corporation (Project General Contractor) to participate in the construction of one of the largest arch bridges in the world. The Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge has been in the works ever since the tragic day of Sept 11, 2001. Since that fateful day, interstate traffic has been greatly restricted for crossing the Hoover Dam.
The Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge is now the 4th largest concrete arch bridge in the world. It spans the canyon just below the Hoover Dam. Our work scope included the erection of the 350’ tall twin cable ways that would carry the bridge material across the canyonal, rig and erect all the precast concrete columns, set all the horizontal steel tub girders, install the stay in place metal decking, and finally remove the twin cable ways once the bridge was complete.
The Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge was recently opened. This monumental project and our success is attributed to our well seasoned work force and management teams. We completed this work safely and without incidents.
