Boulder City, Nev.
Released On: September 18, 2006
Reclamation officials decided to reopen its facilities after the Federal Highway Administration (FWHA) announced that Highway 93 would be reopened to traffic at 8 a.m., Tuesday, September 19.
If an unanticipated development occurs and the highway remains closed, the facilities at Hoover Dam will also remain closed.
The visitor center routinely opens at 9:00 a.m. Pacific time, and closes at 6:00 p.m. Pacific time. Tours of the dam's power plant begin about 9:20 a.m. and run approximately every 15 minutes thereafter until 5:15 p.m.
Water and power operations at the dam are not affected by the closed visitor facilities; those activities are continuing as normal.
