Here's progress as of 05-31-2010. When looking up from street level below, it looks like foot trafic could now cross all the way. I'm guessing there is no actual road surface yet.

Here's pic's taken today, 8-15-2010.

Again not much difference seen from down below. According to the guys doing vehicle inspections today we were told the last of the cement was poured Friday. They went on to say that scheduled completion is early November, 2010.

Our local news had a segment recently that stated the roadway will be around 1900' long, and the arc itself is around 1000' long. They also stated work began in Jan. 2005.

Hi Vinny- I just read your Q in post # 97. If I remember right those vehicles up there were construction trucks that carried welding machines and crew. It will be cool to be first Airstream across however if you or Mike want the honor I'll be close behind.

Almost there. It's seems like they've been working on this bridge forever. It will make getting to Vegas sooo much faster and better.

This could end up as the first murder on the By pass. Some would say justifiable homicide.

When's it opening? I'm going to be departing Vegas on the 24th!

Hasn't the water been about that low for 5 years or so?
