The Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge was built to re-route traffic away from Hoover Dam, which was formerly a part of US93. The new bridge includes a pedestrian walkway that offers an incredible view of the dam. Best of all, you can walk across the bridge for free. Stairs and ramps lead up to the bridge, and several placards and signs offer information about the bridge and the history of the men it's named for, although most people refer to it informally as the Bypass Bridge. The bridge is an architectural feat, one of the highest concrete-arch bridges in the world and the second highest bridge in the United States, standing 890 feet above the Colorado. It's 1,905 feet long and offers unparalleled views of Hoover Dam for those who are not afraid of heights.
