Golden gate bridge The Golden Gate Bridge opened
on May 27, 1937. It connects San
Francisco Penninsula with Marin
County. The city Engineer James

it cost $35 Million dollars.
There is 80,000 miles of wire in the main cables and the bridge has 1.2 Million Rivets. Suicides are the most common on this bridge and the most common in the whole world. Experts say that the bridge is 245 feet above the water and if you fall off you will hit the water at 76 miles per hour and it will be like hitting a concrete wall. "There's a Silver Moon on the
Golden Gate is the official song
commerating the opening of the
Golden Gate Bridge in 1937. Strauss Wrote a Poem that

Task is done".The speed limit
