United States : Reclamation to offer modified Hoover Dam tours during visitor center remodel and tour elevator upgrades September 27, 2018.

The Bureau of Reclamation announced that on October 1, construction will begin to remodel and enhance one level of the Hoover Dam Visitor Center and modernize the facilitys primary tour elevators. To accommodate the construction, temporary alteration of its internal tour and Visitor Center operations is necessary.

We look forward to improving our Visitor Center and tour capabilities. These improvements will enhance our visitors experience well into the future, said Leonard C. Schilling, Area Manager of the Lower Colorado Dams Office. To facilitate these construction activities, we need to take the Theater Level (the normal visitor entrance) and the primary tour route elevators out of service for approximately four-months.

Construction work will begin on October 1 and is scheduled to be completed by February 14, 2019. During the construction period, the dams primary Visitor Center Exhibit and Observation Levels, as well as the Original Exhibit Building, will remain open. A modified Powerplant Tour initiating at the original ticket window on top of the dam will be available.

Due to the limited capacity of the dams service elevators which are not typically used for tours of the facility we will suspend online ticket sales for the duration of the construction period, added Schilling. All Exhibit and Powerplant Tour tickets will be sold onsite on the day of use on a first-come first-serve basis.
