Home » Guides » Nevada » State Route 172

Traveling 1.308 miles, Nevada 172 connects Interstate 11 & U.S. 93 directly with Hoover Dam. The state road overlays a former portion of U.S. 93 between Exit 2 and a boundary line for the Bureau of Reclamation west of the dam.

Nevada 172 was commissioned by late 2010 when U.S. 93 was moved over to the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge (Hoover Dam Bypass).
