Yes sir, I drove over it in the spring when it was still the main highway, and my mom went over the bridge in the fall after it was finished.

She was disappointed because she wanted to drive over the dam.

I actually drove over the damn and that thing is massive (that's what she said. lol). I wanted to get on it to take pics but I got lazy and we needed to get to Vegas.

it was pretty cool to take pictures off of, you're definitely in the middle of a wind tunnel when you stand there, I wouldn't be surprised if someone lost a hat at least daily there.

I also don't think you fully appreciate the scale of it until you stick your head over the edge and look down to see how small the stair cases at the bottom are....

It's pretty phenomenal.

I'll go look at my pics and see if there are any worth posting.

I like how you can look almost straight down into the overflow tunnel. Looks big enough to parachute into.

Here's the bridge on april 11th 2010

and the downward view of the dam. I have a couple better pictures, but this one shows scale best.
