Traffic Restrictions Eased at Hoover Dam

April 13, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Traffic restrictions at Hoover Dam eased for sightseeing buses and local truckers, but an official said long-haul tractor-trailers will remain banned indefinitely.

Tour buses, recreational vehicles and rental trucks were being let across the Colorado River landmark for the first time since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, said Bob Walsh, spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation in Boulder City, Nev.

All vehicles still were being inspected at police checkpoints on U.S. 93 on the Arizona and Nevada sides of the dam, Walsh said.

Long-haul trucks will continue to be routed south to cross the Colorado River on U.S. 95 between Laughlin, Nev., and Bullhead City, Ariz., "at least for a couple of years," Walsh said.
