Golden Gate Bridge celebrates 75 years

Posted in News by Anton    

It was built as the country was emerging from the Great Depression, and grew into an icon of America. It was also heralded as an engineering marvel when it opened in 1937. It was the world’s longest suspension span and had been built across a strait that critics said was too treacherous to be bridged. But as the iconic Golden Gate Bridge approaches its 75th anniversary over Memorial Day weekend, the generations of engineers who have overseen it all these years say keeping it up and open has been something of a marvel unto itself.
