There is enough concrete in the Hoover Dam to build a road stretching across the entire US, and construction was such a big deal culturally that spectators came out to watch the high-flying antics of some construction crews. The Hoover Dam was the tallest dam in the world when construction was completed and still stands as one of the most impressive, impactful construction projects of the 20th century.
