Colorado River Bridge at Hoover Dam between Arizona and Nevada
• Clear span of the finished concrete arch will be 1060ft (323m), over a 900ft (274m) deep gorge|
Arch ribs are cast separately, and later joined by steel bracing
Arch halves are being built simultaneously to save time
The closure pours will be done with the travelers, thus requiring no special formwork
