A tale of two bridges

Dear Editor:On May 28, 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge was opened to vehicular traffic. This bridge, sometimes known as the “bridge that couldn’t be built” because of persistent fog, 60 mph winds and strong ocean currents, was completed after slightly more than four years of construction. This approximately 1.2-mile suspension bridge spans the Golden Gate, the opening into the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean…. And what are the stats on the Maroon Creek Bridge? Hmmmm.Helene GudeAspen
