Getting to Hover Dam via what road?

I was wondering if anyone knew of the best route to get to the Dam from Vegas, I was looking on google earth and it appears there is road construction on 93 near the Railroad Pass Hotel and Casino and google earth has us getting there by instead going using route 564 up and around. I have driven out to the Dam a number of times from Vegas and always gone 93 through Boulder City and such, so not sure what construction is going on that either slows or doesn't allow travel to the Dam from Vegas. We will be driving up there on a Saturday night and staying at the Dam Lodge for the night before visiting the Dam, lake Mead and Valley of Fire the next day.

Wasn't really over thinking it, just kinda wondered why Google earth/map had me not go how I have always gone and instead go a longer way, wasn't sure if the road construction meant road closeures or long delays.

Read a paper map.

There are several on-line Hoover Dam ticket prices.

We recommend the on-site, interior dam tour.

Park in the Parking Garage.

"Park in the Parking Garage."

Or drive past it, drive over the dam, and park on the Arizona side for free.
