When the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge was opened in late 2010, reporters and tourists agreed its standing beauty is comparable to that of Hoover Dam, one of America’s treasured tourist attractions. The Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge was constructed to make travels safer for tourists driving between Phoenix and Las Vegas. Where the memorial bridge now stands is a key component to the Hoover Dam Bypass Project and serves as an alternative route to U.S. Highway 93, a narrow, two-lane highway with dangerous curves and originally the only route possible towards Hoover Dam. Since the opening of the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge in October of 2010, tourism has increased dramatically as tourists come to view not only the Hoover Dam but the memorial bridge itself as it stands as the second highest bridge in the United States.
