FILE - In this April 10, 2011 file photo, traffic backs up heading southbound toward Lake Mead on U.S. Highway 93 in Boulder City, Nev. The Hoover Dam, one of the world's great engineering feats, is marred by roads with traffic so jammed along the Nevada-Arizona border that it tells a different story about the political will to maintain 21st century infrastructure. The road leading to the dam cannot accommodate the torrent of tourists and spills them into the overwhelmed little town of Boulder City. Nevada lawmakers are trying to find a private company to build a $400 million bypass because the state cannot afford it. (AP Photo/Julie Jacobson, File)
