Dam Diesels

Published in the July 2010 Issue July 2010

We snapped this shot of a 2010 Dodge Ram 6.7L Cummins earlier this year while checking out the views from atop Hoover Dam.

When Hoover Dam was completed in 1936, it was probably difficult to imagine the amount of traffic that would cross over the dam's roadway on US 93, or the slow pace it would crawl at in a post-9/11 America.

But we're certain that the people who originally designed, engineered and constructed the dam over a five-year period would have an ear-to-ear grin across their faces over the construction of the Hoover Dam Bypass--a 1,060-foot twin-rib concrete arch that bridges the Colorado river 1,500 feet above the water. Because they understand how if you give the right people enough concrete and the right tools, they'll build something amazing.
