There’s not much to say about these images of the Hoover Dam Bypass except expletives mixed with a dozen shades of amazement.

It’s not the longest or the tallest or the biggest or the complexest, and still, it’s stunning:

These images of the bridge: called the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge – were shot in September 2009, as the 1,060-foot twin-rib concrete arch advances towards its late 2010 opening. The $240 million, 2,000-foot bridge is part of a larger project, a 3.5-mile corridor that begins in Clark County, Nevada, and ends in Mohave County, Arizona.
