The Nevada Department of Transportation will conduct a rolling closure of the sidewalk on the O’Callaghan-Tillman Memorial Bridge, which bypasses the Hoover Dam, from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 15 through 18.

The closure is part of a bridge safety inspection completed once every two years.

It will begin on the Arizona side of the bridge, during which the Arizona side of the sidewalk will be closed. During this time, the Nevada portion of the sidewalk will remain open.

As the inspection moves to the Nevada side of the bridge, the entire sidewalk will be closed. During hours when no work is being done, the sidewalk will be open for public use.

Additionally, there will be lane restrictions coming into and leaving Nevada in place for the duration of the project.
