Latest on the Net

The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District has posted a new video that shows fabrication of the bridge net border cable by the contractor in Missouri. The custom-fabricated cable will support the net webbing, and will attach to the inside and outside of the struts for the full length of the net. This way the net will stay rigid and won't sag.. In addition to being 20 feet below the roadway, the net will extend 20 feet on each side of the bridge. Itn total, it will be 360,000 square feet, or the size of seven football fields.
BCDC Permit Approved

One more hurdle emerged recently regarding the suicide deterrent system on the Golden Gate Bridge. Construction has been moving along, but the Bay Conservation and Development Commission held a hearing this month to determine whether to issue a permit for the work. BCDC has authority over all projects in San Francisco Bay, including those that result in "fill," whether by land or air. BRF members attended the hearing and provided testimony, and the permit was approved. No further permitting issues are expected.
