With exposed surface area equal to nearly 10 football fields, one of the world’s top concrete icons supported Daimler Trucks North America’s early-May premier for the first autonomous Class 8 truck licensed to use public roads. Hoover Dam, linking Arizona and Nevada at the Black Canyon and embodying 3 million yd. of cast-in-place concrete, served as the backdrop for a prime time video presentation on the Freightliner Inspiration Truck. The 30-minute production was capped by the vehicle’s arrival at the center of the structure, whose top bears U.S. 93 traffic.
