BOULDER CITY, Nev. -- The new bridge over the Hoover dam was built with the hopes of making travel easier for drivers. But for people in Boulder City, they say it's doing the opposite and hurting business and causing traffic snarls.
When the Mike O'Callaghan - Pat Tillman Bridge opened in October, it cleared the way for semi-trucks and commercial vehicles to cross near the dam for the first time in years. But people who live in Boulder City don't like the increased traffic and they want another highway built. At least 1,000 more vehicles are passing through Boulder City than a year ago.
A cold windy day doesn't keep Stuart Litjens from working at his family owned business, BoulderBoats.com. While his business specializes in boats, it's cars and trucks that may force his business to sail away.
