The Hoover Dam Bypass Project
The Hoover Dam Bypass project which started in 2005 was a high profile project for our organization. After the collapse of the original cableway crane system, we were called in to customize a new system and utilize our unique derrick cranes to complete the project. The Hoover Dam Bypass is the first concrete-steel arch bridge and the second-highest bridge in the United States and was completed in October 2010.
Not a small nor easy task
This bridge project was not a small, nor easy task. After the damage was assessed and rubble removed; we came in with two custom 50-ton hi-line cableway crane systems that included four 10’ x 10’ x 330’ cableway towers, inhaul/outhaul traction winches, inhaul/outhaul anchor winches, load line winches, two 250 hydraulic power units, tower luffing winches, Manitowoc 390 gut line tension winches, 200-ton rigging blocks, travel trolleys, 50-ton trolley load blocks, slack line carriers and over 65,000’ of wire rope. Along with this system, there was an American S70 stiff leg derrick with 240’ of boom and 80’ jib operated by an American 550 triple drum diesel hoist. These unique and custom made pieces of equipment helped to complete a job and establish a well-known staple in the Las Vegas area, for tourists of all types.
