About


Introduction:

Linking San Francisco with Marin County, the Golden Gate Bridge is a 1.7 mile-long suspension bridge that can be crossed by car, on bicycles or on foot.

The Golden Gate Bridge, completed after more than four years of construction at a cost of $35 million (that’s nearly a half-billion dollars in today’s currency), is a landmark recognized almost universally. The bridge opened to vehicle traffic on May 28, 1937 at twelve o'clock noon.

The Golden Gate Bridge's 4,200-foot-long main suspension span was a world record that stood for 27 years. The bridge's two towers rise 746 feet making them 191 feet taller than the Washington Monument. The five-lane bridge crosses Golden Gate Strait.
