CONSTRUCTING AN ARCH. Henry Nejako sent me this slide show of the ongoing construction of the Hoover Dam Bypass, also known as the Colorado River Bridge with the caption “Acrophobiacs beware.” In case the New York Times link goes down, here is a link to a slide show at the site of Jamey Stillings, who took the wonderful pictures. The warning to acrophobiacs is apt. I have a physical reaction to the photographs. Apparently a modern arch can be built by simply building each side up until they join.
