Golden Gate Bridge Walk
Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the bridge
Tour led by Mike Daly (Ironworkers Local 377)
Few bridges are as well known as this iconic structure, and today’s retrofit and maintenance crews are constantly preserving and updating its operational performance. Hear about the challenges of the original construction and learn about the current projects. Meet the trade members who maintain the bridge today. Walk out onto the Bridge with some of its own ironworkers and painters, and hear from them the creative ways they meet every challenge. Learn also how the new Doyle Drive rebuild will impact the way the Bridge is operating. Hear how the ongoing seismic upgrades will protect the Bridge into the future.
