Hoover Dam is about 721ft tall.  At it's base, the dam is up to 660ft wide front to back and at the top, it's 45ft wide.  The dam is about 1244ft in length at the top from Nevada to Arizona.  During early construction, more than 8.5 million pounds of dynamite was used to blast the foundation for the dam and the 8 miles of tunnels running through the canyon walls.
