How long did it take to repair the Bay Bridge?

The replacement span opened on September 2, 2013, almost 24 years after the earthquake. Of that, construction itself took eleven years, from 2002 to 2013.

Why is Golden Gate Bridge so famous?

It had long been thought that to build a bridge at the location would be impossible due to strong currents, the depth of water in the Golden Gate Strait and the regular occurrence of strong winds and fog. Until 1964 the Golden Gate Bridge had the longest suspension bridge main span in the world, at 1,280m (4,200 ft).
