About the Golden Gate Bridge
Constructed in 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge was designed to conquer an incredible feat: to connect Marin County to San Francisco. Prior to the bridge’s construction, Marin County could only be reached practically from San Francisco by boat. The construction of this bridge consumed over $35 million dollars and took nearly 4 years to complete. The Golden Gate Bridge was, and remains to this day, massive in length; the bridge expands nearly a mile across the Pacific Ocean. At the time of its completion, the Golden Gate Bridge was both the longest and tallest suspension bridge ever built. Currently, the Golden Gate Bridge contains within it both Route 101 and California Route 1 and remains one of the most famous attractions in the United States.
