Revisiting the Bridge at Hoover Dam
Reviewing past posts, there are quite a few about construction and building topics. I suppose that’s appropriate – these days I make my living as a construction executive after all, and I’ve done good time at a couple of major architecture and construction firms over the years. Those facts put the little encounter I had yesterday at the office into perspective.
In 2013, Mary and I combined a work trip to Las Vegas with a drive up to the Grand Canyon. On the way, we made a point of stopping at the Hoover Dam for the tour (see this post), and for a walk across the new bridge. It turns out that one of my work colleagues (an engineer who works as a construction project manager) had some aerial photos that had been taken during the construction of the bridge, and he shared them, so I thought I’d make them the topic of today’s blog post.
