Taking some time to look back over time.
The nation’s newest interstate is open for business. You may have heard us talk about I-11: the 15 mile stretch of federal highway that *someday* is supposed to connect Las Vegas and Phoenix – and maybe even Mexico and Canada. The so-called Boulder City bypass was several years in the making, and I thought you might enjoy a few seconds of a timelapse on one part of the project. First, a look at that finished part of the freeway – the double arch bridge just north of the scenic overlook, courtesy of traffic nerd Justin Yee.
An NDOT timelapse shows that bridge being built. It started as a couple pieces of reinforced metal in September of last year, with the video ending a few weeks before the grand opening earlier this month. Pretty cool, huh?
The whole video runs about 5 minutes and there’s another time lapse of another part of the project that goes along with it. Click here to see both of those NDOT time lapse videos.
As always: buckle up, drive carefully and put down that phone!
