Suicide net at Golden Gate Bridge to be finished in 2021

National

The long-planned suicide barrier for the Golden Gate Bridge is slowly taking shape. 

The Golden Gate Bridge District showed off the new net, which is being installed under the bridge. 

When it is finished, the net will sit 20 feet below the road deck on both sides. 

The net is there to deter people from jumping and to catch people if they jump. 

The barrier will cost about $211 million and is expected to be finished in two years.
