Hoover Dam


The Hoover Dam (sometimes known as the "Boulder Dam") is located on the border of Arizona and Nevada, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) Southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. The closest city to the dam is Boulder City, Nevada.

The dam is named after Herbert Hoover who was President of the United States in 1931, when construction was started.

The Hoover Dam currently serves as the crossing for U.S. Route 93 (although semi-trailer trucks, buses and large enclosed-box trucks are not allowed on the dam). From 2008, the new Hoover Dam Bypass will divert U.S. Route 93 over a new bridge.
