The Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge was built to reroute traffic away from the top of the Hoover Dam. It crosses over Black Canyon, connecting Arizona and Nevada via U.S. Route 93. An estimated 15,000 vehicles cross the bridge every day.

Washington Rock worked with Las Vegas Paving to ship enough Armorstone for six bridge deck overlays near the Hoover Dam, including the Memorial Bridge.


180 tons of Armorstone Overlay Aggregates


The Memorial Bridge, with a length of 1,900 feet and a span of 1,060 feet, required nearly 2 million square feet of product. Las Vegas Paving project manager Coy Nelson appreciated not only the quality of the product but also the communication Washington Rock provides.
