This is what my husband has been working on for the last 2 years. I knew it was high (obviously) but I guess I never really guessed at the enormity of this bridge. We went last week to a closure party. They celbrated getting the last piece of that bad boy done. That little box thing in the middle of the bridge is where ther men are all still working. After the party he took us all out to see it and it is truly an amzing thing to see. The Hoover Dam is an amazingly awesome site but add this fly over bridge and all you can do is say WOW. I was never afraid of what my hubby does until I saw this and now I say a prayer each day he leaves. I now don't complain when he asks what are you makin me for breakfast or when he leaves his laundry upstairs intsead of bringing it down for me. He talks about being harnessed and hanging 900 ft in the air but I don't think I really absorded this until I saw it. I will never again roll my eyes or mumble under my breath that he could make is own darn breakfast. I need to be thankful he comes home everyday in one piece and that I get to stay home and raise our kids. I appreciate what this man does to support his family and the other men and women that share this same job as Ub (my hubby's nickname).
If you click on the picture you can see it really good. One last thing, I don't believe I will ever cross this bridge EVER...lol...all those cables have to go so I ask "what will hold up that arch and the highway once those cables are gone" the answer NOTHING!!!! Nope never riding over that bridge.
