And is very scenic. Unfortunately, can't stop while on the bridge but great views are available anyway.

“An amazing feat of architecture and beauty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

You want height?? How's 880 feet above the mighty Colorado River and 280 feet ABOVE Hoover Dam! The Bypass was built to get traffic to and from Arizona-Nevada without having to drive across the Dam itself. It is located just south of the Dam with incredible views of the entire Dam and the supportive complex below. The engineers were thinking ahead as they put a safe and traffic separated pedestrian walkway that allows visitors to view the above and Lake Mead. Once at the parking lot, there is a "zig-zag" sidewalk that climbs to ped cross over. There are also stairs to the top which shortens the walk but is considerably steeper. There's no cost to this attraction but the views are worth a million bucks! The parking lot is on the Nevada side and does have RV parking. Use the bathroom if needed in the parking lot before you go up as there is nothing at the top.

“Magnificent Bridge by-pass”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

We watched them build the expanse over the canyon for the last 5 years or so, to keep terriost off Hoover Dam. It was quite a feat. Be sure to park and walk out on the bridge for views of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. You cannot see off the bridge from your car.
