Las Vegas to Hoover Dam

Avoid driving from Las Vegas to Hoover Dam. The drive took us 2.5 hours because of the routing of trucks onto another road and the security searches of vehicles even just approaching the dam. The return trip only took 20 minutes. I must admit the dam was interesting though.

Your trip was not normal. Generally, the trip to the dam only takes a few minutes longer than the trip back. Of course, if you catch Boulder Hwy outbound during the evening rush hour or if there is a serious accident, the time your trip takes will vary.

They are doing a lot of construction in that area and my parents, who were there just a couple of weeks ago, said it was an absolute nightmare.
