Bridge Construction

The country’s largest cathedral-arch bridge is a 295-ft-tall bridge located about 20 miles south of Reno. along highway 580. The 2012 opening of Galena Bridge in Reno shortens the drive time to Carson City by 15 minutes and diverts traffic away from communities in Washoe County for approximately 40,000 cars per day . The highway and bridge project totaled an estimated cost of  $600 million dollars and after 10 years of challenging delays the 2012 opening was welcomed by many. Here are some aerial images of the construction project.
