Not sure if this is the rght place to post this, Sorry if it is nonsense..

Does anyone have any imformation about Hoover Dam underground tunnels ? And it's reference to the Star Alcyone ? And similarities to the Great Pyramid. If any. Maybe it is just nonsense !

it is rumoured to have underground tunnels that lead to area 51

Lake Mead's Hoover Dam SE of Las Vegas. Rumors that the dam construction workers penetrated extensive caverns near the base of the cliffs, that Lake Mead is a hot spot of alien activity, and that the floor of one level of the dam contains a "wild tile inlay on the floor, with signs of the zodiac and all sorts of stuff suggesting an entrance.

Between the years 1922 and 1942, the total time for construction of Hoover Dam, a total of 114 men died.

I think the Star Chart relates to the constellation of Pleiades., or Alcoyne Star. Our solar system is thought by some to revolve around this star along with other solar systems much like the planets revolve around our sun.

At midnight of the autumnal equinox in the year of the Great Pyramid's completion, a line extending from the apex pointed to the star Alcyone.

Connection or Similarities of this Dam completion date pointng to Alcyone as The Great Pyramid was ?

Government Source: www.usbr.gov...

" Surrounding the base is a terrazzo floor, inlaid with a star chart, or celestial map. The chart preserves for future generations the date on which President Franklin D. Roosevelt dedicated Hoover Dam, September 30, 1935.

The apparent magnitudes of stars on the chart are shown as they would appear to the naked eye at a distance of about 190 trillion miles from earth. In reality, the distance to most of the stars is more than 950 trillion miles.

In this celestial map, the bodies of the solar system are placed so exactly that those versed in astronomy could calculate the precession (progressively earlier occurrence) of the Pole Star for approximately the next 14,000 years. Conversely, future generations could look upon this monument and determine, if no other means were available, the exact date on which Hoover Dam was dedicated.
------------------------

There are Winged Statues at the Dam, that guard an entrance. An artist was commisioned to make them for the Dam.

I can't offer you very much information, but here is the floor that you spoke about. All I know is that it was laid by Italian contractors.


EDIT: I just wanted to correct the dates you posted concerning construction.
The dam was built between 1931 - 1936, although the commission was formed in 1922.

Thanks for your help and photo.
Is this the same star chart as the one in the link I posted? Looks different. It had the word Alcyone on it.

I googled Alcyone, and a few sites said it represents 33 Degrees of Free Masonry, and meant Master, or Ma | Ster, which meant Mother Star, and they are taught God resides there.

The two statues are called 'Winged Figures of the Republic'. The statues are what led me to search around, as I had seen them used in something I suspected was related to alien contact, so it was intriguing to finally find them and here they are beside this Star Chart.

the floor posted by anxietydisorder
is not the same as the alcyone floor in the link this maybe an image on the floor somewhere else in the complex?

The Alcyone-masonry connection could be significant?

I have a few hoover dam questions:

Wheres the dam bathroom?

Is there any dam elevators?

Wheres the dam smell coming from (They smell like limestone, dams do.)

Well I see the symbol as a stamp of approval by the builders. Bot anything "Mysterious". The Dam is stone. REAL masons built it. Very rich and powerful people in the gov. who funded and helped with the dan were most likely Freemasons. I don't think it is a big secret if they were.

Now the issue about the tunnels...I don't know what to think about that. Noe THATS a mystery.

This is the floor I'm most familiar with, I've walked across it.


I've been to the dam several times, and did the whole tour in the late 70's, and again in the mid 80's.
I find the floor I posted very strange, but have no idea what it means.

I've never seen the floor in the link you posted, maybe it's not on the tour, or I just didn't see it.

The floor with the Star Chart is at the base of the Winged Statues, and is outside.

"Wheres the dam bathroom?"
There are quite a few of the fiberglass outdoor potties around the view sites.
Most times, pretty miserable for the ladies.
They don't clean them well or often.

There are bathrooms for the public inside the dam if you take the tour.

If you're simply passing over the dam headed for Boulder City at the top of the hill, Henderson or Las Vegas, a good potty stop is the Hacienda casino at the top of the not-too-long hill leaving the dam proper.
Access to the parking lot is easy.
Leave a few bucks in the slot machines as a token of appreciation if you like.


"Is there any dam elevators?"
Yes.

A couple, maybe four.
They start at the top of the dam and are available to those taking the tour.
The tour is very worthwhile and everyone should do it at least once.


"Wheres the dam smell coming from (They smell like limestone, dams do.) "
Got me there.
I would guess from the old cement.
Seems like old cement structures, dams and buildings always smell like that.


If you drive up Hwy 93 from Kingman or Laughlin be advised there is an inspection station about 10-15 miles south of the dam.
If you're turned back, you're looking at a 60-65 mile drive to the Hwy 68 intersection and perhaps 25 miles to Laughlin at the Colorado River at the bottom of the hill.
Then it's another 25-27 miles or so up away from the River to Hwy 95 which parallels Hwy 93, but is on the West side of the River.
95 hits the highway to Las Vegas/Henderson about 2-3 miles west of Boulder City.
Once you hit the Hwy 68/95 intersection you're looking at 65-70 miles up that highway to Boulder City.

The west side inspection station is about 2-3 miles down the hill from the casino

There are phone numbers you can call for information as well as tune your AM radio to the dam information frequency - 1610 khz I believe.

Big diesel tractor-trailer rigs are not allowed.

U-Haul trailers, enclosed box race car type trailers with furniture or anything packed in to where the officers cannot inspect it easily is prohited.
Empty or with just a few things within are ok.
As is a race car or other car inside a race car type trailer.
No containers of gasoline allowed.

Big and small motor homes along with big and small travel trailers are allowed as are pickup mounted campers.
You will be directed to a separate inspection area with any large enclosed vehicle - including the trailers mentioned above - for inspection.
Most times it's quick, the officers are efficient and friendly.

Pickups with an enclosed bed, fiberglass or canvas will be inspected as well.

Obey the posted speed limit across the dam.
There's usually a patrol car at each end of the dam and a whole lot of pedestrians on the sidewalks, but every once in a while some of them will step right in front of you.

Take note as well of the small, but powerful diesel truck tow rig sitting in the small fenced lot just up from the new copper sheathed restaurant on the west side of the dam.

The dam is a marvelous place and even though it's been there for many years, you will be amazed.
If you have the opportunity, cross over at night during your return trip.
A beautiful sight.

An excellent aerial photo of the dam and out a ways:

www.hooverdambypass.org...

Note that there is a four lane bypass under construction.
Open in 2006 or 2007.
More than likely you'll still be able to drive down to the dam for the tour, but will not be able to cross over unless you stop.

The bypass will be the highest bridge in the US when completed.
It's approx. 1/4 mile downstream from the dam.

The same address listed above will give you views and information on the bypass.

I live south of the dam a ways and cross it 2-3 times a year.
Always a nice experience.

(Edited for clarification.)

I've never heard of a building, dam, city, desert, mountain, ocean, island, airport or military base anywhere in the world that was NOT rumored to
have underground tunnels that lead to A-51.

I'm suprized the surface of the earth doesn't collapse.

The story of the number of men killed on that project is one of the more shameful examples of callus disregard for human life in our history.

Many of them died from CO poisoning digging the diversion tunnels.

A Zodiac with 13 Signs (Constillations)? I Noticed the same amount of Zodiac Symbols on the back of the dollar bill above the eagle. The clouds that surround the stars have Zodiac symobls in them. 13 of them.

Ah, Alcyone. The Great Central Sun. It's amazing that they already know it during their time. These Masons really know some of the truths.

No that would be the 27500 men that died building the Panama Canal, or perhaps it would be the 971 men that died building the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, or maybe the 1,099 workers that died in the Courrières mine disaster in Courrières, France, or maybe just maybe the 19000 that eventually died in the Bhopal disaster in India. Yeah when one is talking historical accounts of callus disregard for human life, there's a butt load of shameful examples....unless of course if by "our history" you mean the USA's history and not human history. In that case I'd nominate either the South Fork Dam break in Pennsylvania that killed 2200 or the General Slocum Paddleboat Fire in New York City where 1031 died on what was called "the floating fire trap"!
