One of the great tourist attractions in the west is Hoover Dam. Besides regulation the flow of the Colorado River and generating electricity for several states, it is also a marvelous place to visit. It is so popular an attraction that tourists jam the highway over the dam and cause many traffic problems and delays.
The solution is the newly constructed commuter bridge downstream of the dam itself. We built this model of the dam and bridge before construction to show the look and feel of the new structure. The civil engineers, developers, state officials and construction workers all saw this model during the design and contracting phase of construction. The model is currently residing in our front office to welcome visitors to our model shop.
