Project Description

When the Golden Gate Bridge opened in 1937, it was then the longest suspension bridge in the world at 4,200 feet. Built to withstand both wind and earthquakes, each of the bridge’s cables comprises hundreds of wires, anchored for support. A deck truss prevents too much sway, but cables can still move up to 27 feet to accommodate winds.

Fun facts about the LEGO version at Brick by Brick:
·60 feet long
·Design time: 215 hours
·Build time: 260 hours
·Number of bricks: 64,500
·At 60 feet, this model is so long it could not be fully set up until installation at MSI.
