Northern Nevada Freeway
Volunteers drive across the Galena Bridge on I-580 in Washoe Valley, Nev. on July 28, 2012. Built on the side of mountains, the soon-to-open $550 million Interstate 580 freeway between Reno and Washoe Valley is not only the most expensive single highway project in Nevada history, but also is destined to become one of the most scenic roads in the state.
