SUSPENDER ROPE PAINTING OPERATIONS ON GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE EAST SIDEWALK

Work continues through 2009, Weather Depending

 

Continuing through 2009, suspender rope (the vertical ones) painting operations will be undertaken on the EAST sidewalk (the one that faces San Francisco) of the Golden Gate Bridge. The work is dependent on weather conditions.

To conduct this work safely and efficiently, Bridge crews will work within a 4 foot wide by 200 foot long work zone set up along the outside (waterside) railing of the East sidewalk. Barricades will be set up parallel to and 4 feet away from the outside rail (see photo below). The work zone will be clearly marked with signs, reflective tape and cones.

The barricades will leave a 6 ft. 6 in. clear path for bicycles and pedestrians. Bicyclists must walk their bicycles through the work zone area.

The work zone will move along the sidewalk in 200 foot increments as work progresses, starting with the area just north of the South Tower, followed by the area just south of the South Tower.
